<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ForsbergForVezina</b></div><div>Wahlstrom should get a shot now, absolutely. Sounds like he had a good camp and his style is just what we need. Considering his upside is probably higher than Bellows' at this point, I'd rather see him in the lineup if I had to choose between the two, but I'll take what I can get at this point.
I don't love Leo; I'd rather not have him (and his cap hit) than keep him, but he's not a horrible piece. He's okay defensively and can chip in offense here. If he's complimenting his linemates, I think he's serviceable. 2nd line should stay, you're right, although if Wahlstrom or Bellows starts playing better than expected somehow, I think moving one of them up and Bailey down is worth considering</div></div>
I think you keep that 2nd line together as long as it keeps producing. If Wahlstrom proves he deserves more ice time, I’d put him with Barzal on the 1st line, then see if Lee or Eberle would be better suited on the 3rd line. Also the idea of Lee or Eberle playing sheltered minutes while they and Pageau skate around third pairings just sounds fun.
