Team Explanation
Or do they push Lindholm back to wing? After such a good season at C that seems less likely?

    Backlund should have been a 3C for year due to his style of game, he was stretched way too thin playing 2C, he's an elite 3C and a good 2C. This is a perfect situation down the middle.

    Yes it does. Sutter loved his Backlund-Coleman duo, and especially now they're going to be tasked with the shutdown role.

    Kadri is a good two way forward too. Coleman and Kadri on a line together would be NASTY.

    Gonna have to clear some space for Huberdeau's extension, and to extend Weegar.

    Personally I would want to see Huberdeau - Lindholm - Toffoli. I think that's just such a good fit to get Toffoli back to scoring in bunches. Mangiapane and Kadri play very similar and I would loooovvee them to raise hell in the offensive zone! Coleman Backlund are an elite shut down line with anyone else! Pelletier getting sheltered by Backlund would be great.

    Pelletier - Kadri - Mangiapane/Toffoli
    Dube - Backlund - Coleman
    Lucic - Rooney - Lewis

    Probably won't put the kid Pelletier on a shutdown line.

    It's honestly a dream roster for Sutter, I don't think they have as explosive a regular season but they're built significantly better for the playoffs.

    I only didn't do that as originally I had all three of coleman/kadri/mangiapane on one line and they're all left hand shots

    As I said elsewhere, I would think they swap Tofolli and Mangiapane for the hand balance. Teams don't like 3 left handed players on a line

    Not sure that the report I saw was legitamite or not. It would line up with similar cap dumps in the past (Tor dumping Marleau)

    Looks like you were kinda right. It's a first in 3 years. So that limits value.
