    My issue with giving Veleno third line duties is pretty much the same problem that happened with him at the WJC. He's not a bottom-6 kind of player, he needs top-6 time, so I'd much rather have him get that at the GR than get botton-6 time with the Wings.

    I can't remember exactly what we did with Larkin, but I'm pretty sure he was playing top-6 on the wing, which may be something to consider with Veleno if he makes the team. We need to start treating high end talent like high end talent, meaning give them a shot and see if they run with it or fail. This may be something to consider with Zadina as well.

    Larkin was on Z's wing.

    Unfortunately that's not an option with Veleno, but there might be a spot on the second line if Nyquist gets traded. Vanek isn't going to get re-signed, and Ras could get dropped to the third line.

    The idea of a top and bottom six is a thing of the past imo. Depending on FA + the Draft, I think we can surround him with plenty of talent on the wings, even if it is on the third line.

    Yep agreed 100%, the top teams are rolling out 3 strong lines and maybe a defensively responsible 4th line that still has skill elements.

    Don’t put too much stock into a small tournament like that. Veleno is a very complete player.

    3 point games for Joe don't even excite me anymore. Let alone 2 point games.

    In an ideal situation, I think we should be moving to our top nine being offensive oriented, and keep our fourth line as a checking/defensive unit.
    Larkin is a good 2 way pivot, and Veleno is advertised as a 200ft player as well. And if you look at a team like Tampa bay, they have three offensive speedy guys up the middle in Point, Stamkos, and Johnson I believe. The whole top 6 and bottom 6 is a bit outdated IMO.

    He will play 3-4 games max. Both Mantha and Rasmussen were in better physical shape . Mantha first full year was at 21. Let's not rush them

    If I am any draftee not named Hughes, I pray to god DRW do not pick me. Because, if they do, I am likely to be in GR for 2 or 3 years.

    Yeah because the wings have done that with top prospects lately. How long were Cholowski, Larkin, Rasmussen or even Hronek in Grand Rapids?

    Man does listening to some of this **** get old.
