I had penciled Nyquist in with PLD and Atkinson back in July, but Torts clearly thinks he's best served (well, vice versa, really) alongside Wennberg to start. I'm not as high on Foligno scoring and that's why I prefer him in a bottom 6 wing role, though I'm sure he'll bounce around the lineup all season. He hasn't broken 40 points in 3 of the last 4 seasons, not missing significant time in any season. When he's not shooting 14+%, he's a sub-40 point player and his ice time has started to dwindle the last couple years. He turns 32 next month, so I doubt there's another level he can get to beyond the 33 and 35 points he put up the last two years (averaging ~18 minutes/game). Clearly, there are question marks on the left side outside of Nyquist and Foligno, and those are exacerbated if Foligno moves to the pivot because the bottom 3 centers (Jenner, Wennberg, maybe Foudy, Dubinsky/Nash) can't hack it. Per Torts, they'll try to figure out Tex's role as well - either at LW or C. Based on the Bemstrom buzz, we may see one of the RWs slide over to the left side, which would then bump a Foligno or Jenner to the bottom line if that happens.
