    Just hate the potential 3rd lines we have atm going into a PO series.
    Get something that you atleast think may work as a 3C and might not even have to deal Brassard to get it.

    But heres a quick starter list i'll make this morning:

    If a names not on here it's cuz either the money don't fit atm(ie. J.Staal)/they pretty likely aren't available(ie. Danault/Haula) or i don't like the player for the 3C position(ie. Carter).

    I like to really like Richardson, Sobotka, Faksa, Coyle, and Lowry.
    Faksa's probably my top guy atm.
    Like pretty much all of the UFA's.
    This was strictly looking at the C position obviously.

    Carolina fans also think that Ferland is going to bring back a 1st at the deadline, so I'm not sure you should take their opinions that seriously :laugh:

    Ferland's value is a 2nd and a decent prospect. I don't think Jarry has that value, but it's very close. Add something like a 3rd/4th to Jarry and you hit that value.

    No kidding, I'm more and more convinced he's a big problem on that third line, not just a passenger. Every time a player sneaks on with another line, they are instantly better and can score again at ES. The bar for upgrading that line at C is pretty darn low.

    What are your thoughts about Nashville? Bonino and Jarnkrok. There is Sissons too but I doubt they’d trade him.

    Ferland would be a good get depending on the price of course. But if he comes in is Simon a permanent fixture on RW?

    Also we need to get Brassard the hell out of here, and need a quality depth center in his place. Preferably a RHS if possible. Both are doable but not necessarily easy.

    I like Simon a lot. I'd have no problem with him being a 4th liner here when we're healthy with the ability to jump up the line-up when we have injuries. His versatility is nice.

    I'd be ok with that also however I think he's played well with Geno of late. I think they're developing some nice chemistry. Simons a nifty type of player, good in tight spaces, on the right side of the puck and has routinely been able to feed Geno for some quality scoring chances.

    with Horny out, I'd certainly keep him there. Or swapped with Rust if things cool off. Him playing well with both Sid and Geno now is pretty great.

    I'm hoping Simon can be Geno's version of Guentzel. Somebody young, fits his style of game, and can grow into a good player.

    Would people be willing to run with Hornqvist on the 4th line when everyone is healthy if the Penguins acquire Ferland? You'll be looking at:

    Guentzel-Crosby-Rust
    Pearson-Malkin-Simon
    Ferland-Brassard-Kessel
    ZAR-Cullen-Hornqvist

    Sure, your first guess may be that Hornqvist wouldn't like 4th line ice time, but he'd still be getting top PP unit time and regular shifts in the top-9.

    I'd do it. Rotate him in when you get injuries/losses of form. I'm not sure the team will though.

    It’s fine if it’s working and it’s not like he wouldn’t be getting extra shifts up the lines on top of the PP.

    If it’s not there is a lot of flexibility there. Rust or Simon would still work great on L4.

    When Schultz comes back (and everyone else is healthy), do the pens need to make a move or will they be cap compliant?

    We’re good. We won’t keep 9 D men though so expect a trade or Ruhwedel sent down. Riikola will pass waivers (I believe) but he’s too good to go down.

    Ferland played RW with Gaudreau and Monahan and is now playing RW with Teravainen and Aho. Seems like it actually might be more accurate to list him as such. But I doubt he has any issue playing the opposite wing.

    It’s funny even without Sprong we are too loaded on RW. I imagine this is what needs to happen, Pearson - Kessel just doesn’t fit. I could see you running Ferland - Malkin - Kessel. The **** Marry Kill line.

    Simon - Brassard - Hornqvist as the 3rd line sounds good to me or follow what you outlined and put Horny on the 4th.

    All he needs to do is start finishing more. He's on his way.

    For NSH specifically atm, nothing really makes sense unless you're trading Phil to them.
    Does a UFA Brassard get you Bonino or Jarnkrok?

    No. Unless they want to gamble on Brassard as their 2C for the season for Bonino. That makes some sense as Turris is struggling offensively. Brassard is too but probably more situationally than anything.

    Jarnkrok can play wing so he’d be out I imagine.
