I certainly don't mind the lines. I think it would be foolish to break up the swedes and Tage. But it feels wrong to move skinner down but it feels equally wrong moving Jj down.. that will be the most interesting part of next year for me.
Maybe skins finishes the year so strong someone will trade for him lol

Just pretend there are no numbers on the lines. We've seen girgensons and okposo lines enough to know they aren't really a 4th line, or atleast play more minutes than a 4th line

That's definitely true. It's just nice to see him not be a tire fire this year

The only thing I might change is to get skinner with Krebs. Krebs is suppose to excel in his ability to setup his line. I do like Krebs with Quinn.

Overall looks good and should be fun to watch next year.

We have the capability of trying to nab Manson in free agency and he would be the perfect partner for either Dahlin or Power. I'm dubious of Skinner's ability to produce offense with Girgensons and Okposo. That said, there really isn't anywhere else to put him in this lineup. I think Peterka may play next season in the AHL as well but I could very well be wrong. I'd also consider how removing your 3 best forwards and best defenseman from the minors would affect Rochester. There would not be a whole lot of talent down there anymore and I think it could negatively impact the development of the prospects there. The D-core should be A-okay with Johnson, Laaksonen, Fitz etc. Forward group would consist of Weissbach, Pekar, Rousek... That's very weak. Doubtful Rosen, Poltapov etc make the jump to NA. I suppose what I'm saying is success for prospects in the NHL starts with having a winning team in the AHL, am I'm not sure depleting Rochester in such a quick order is wise
