    Jake-Sid-Sprong
    HGH
    Simon-Brassard-Kessel
    Kuhn-Sheahan-Rust

    You'd have to include Sheary in a Brassard deal imo.

    JR may have to make a trade to clear salary. LA has lots of cap room.

    Wilson was with them for the Sens series. Hornqvist was with Sid against Washington and injured against Ottawa. Hags got limited minutes because of a LBI and Hornqvist in the final was on the 4th line mainly due to a broken hand. Bonino missed most of the final too with a broken leg.

    Not really throughout wouldn’t you say

    HMK was early in the year.

    And, who cares about what happened last year. If what happened the previous year mattered, then HBK would've worked last year. It didn't.

    HGH > HMK, and it's not even close.

    It's the better possession line.

    It's a better defensive line.

    'Shoot first Malkin' + Horny doing work that allows Malkin to play to his strengths > 'Defer Malkin + Phil forcing Geno to do the lion's share of the dirty work.

    You want to sprinkle in Phil for some random shifts like they did in January, then fine.

    BUT, this year, the team's best line was HGH AINEC.

    Only someone who thinks hockey lines are constructed in video games would think otherwise.

    When you find a line that gives you God mode, shoot first mentality Geno, you stick with it until it stops working. Which is why, despite my historical objection to Geno with Horny, even I know HGH is a must when Horny is back.

    I’m pretty sure Rust was with Crosby for the majority of the Washington series.

    Get Brassard and Grabner and this team has no holes. Aside from Letang.

    I’m 100% that Hornqvist was there. That’s where I wanted him from day 1 in the playoffs. Was annoyed Sully didn’t move him there earlier.

    Rust was with Sid mainly in the last 2 rounds

    Huneick, absolutely. We can't launch him into the sun long enough.

    Sheary I'm torn on. He's having a meh season and for his cap hit, it's not enough. But he was better last year so he could turn it around. Would I scorch the earth if he was moved? No. But I wouldn't be all smiles either.

    You are correct. Sid and the kids got exposed against Columbus, so by the end of that series, Horny was on Sid's RW.

    With what assets? I can only see Sheary to LA for a 2nd, Hunwick+Sprong+1st+? for Brassard, and our 2nd+ LA's 2nd for Grabner.

    I just do not want Kane at all.

    I don't like the idea of bringing unlikable players into the mix.

    Hornqvist played less minutes with Crosby than Rust in the Washington series. Just looked it up. Our third line was Hags - Bonino - Hornqvist in that series.
