<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Smitty426</b></div><div>Disagree on D pairs
I'm not sold on Graves up top but bc he played a lot with Makar it looks to be a better fit they we think. Sevs and Smitty was a good pair.
That woudl give them balanced d pairs of a defensive minded player with an offensive minded player
Agree on 3rd pairing.

I think Mercer makes the team. Agree that JesperBo needs quality min as does Janne but jesper is right behind AJ on hitting the door in their butts</div></div>

You think Graves is better suited for third pair, talent wise? I like him 2nd pair, but I could see that argument.

I know they played together often last year - well at times / others no so much, but Smith / Sever could be improved on imo. Early season is the time to try new looks / combos. Smith and Hamilton could be highly dynamic (both very competent defenders &amp; the offense speaks for itself) ... Graves gives Sever a break from providing the physical aspect that Smith does not offer (not to say Smith is soft, just small) &amp; frees him to think more Offensively. I like breaking them up, but maybe your right, guess we will see soon.

Agree last chance for Jesper at 3C. He better take it. Too many in pipeline to fight off if he does not have an impact this season. Love Mercer, but they need to give him at least a 1/2 year of pro hockey (AHL) before feeding him to NHL defenders, dont they?
