    I thought Dater said Nemeth made it into the top-6 and Barberio didn’t.

    Nemeth - Cole pairing would be a disaster, with Barbs you at least have one semi-capable puck mover.

    I can fix it if necessary. I couldn't find an official source for lines, this is my best guess.

    Agreed, but I think they see Nemeth as a high end PK guy... so he probably draws in more often than not.

    Both our seasons start tonight. Avs/Wild, Sens/Hawks. This is the first time I'll have ever really used that NHL.tv split screen feature.

    Agreed, which is why I was a bit puzzled they went after Cole at first, but I think they see him as someone to ease in Makar when the time comes.

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense actually.

    Girard-EJ
    Zadorov-Barrie
    Cole-Makar
    Timmins

    Man that’s a D corps I can get behind.

    Why? Makar shoots right and Cole shoots left, why put them on their off hands?

    My personal theory has shifted to EJ insurance. A guy who can step into a middle pairing role on a good team (Cole has done it before) and not hurt the team too much while playing there.

    Cole is better as a RD

    Cole plays RD, Makar can play both and if I'm not mistaken actually prefers LD, but Henchy can correct me on that one if I'm wrong.

    I don't know if he prefers LD, but Makar can play both. Makar mostly played right last season and will play right this season. Makar played both sides with regularity at Brooks. Happens when you are out for 30+ minutes a game.

    I don't know what you're talking about. The Avalanche have never lost a game to the Wild.
