    Doesn't seem like a thing with Panarin and Bob up in the air. Dubinsky and Foligno will roll off in a couple of seasons and Savard may or may not roll off the next season. PLD and Werenski are the big RFA contracts.

    Anderson gives them another look. I'm not all that concerned about it yet.

    I agree with you but I’ll add it’s all about players complementing each other. If Tom Wilson can play top line on the Cup winners, Andy can be. Top linebacker player.

    Other than when they score goals :sarcasm:, I think this is a big problem with the Jackets roster. To me the pieces don't go together all that well.

    As far as Andy middle or outside linebacker? :huh:

    I think there's also a reason why you want guys like Anderson on lower lines. He scores his goals off of turnovers, like last night, or blazing down the wing by himself, or in battles in front of the net. Meaning: you don't gain that much pairing him with great playmakers. I could be wrong but I don't think Tom Wilson ever had that much scoring touch when he was in the bottom six.

    I recall making the same case about Cam Atkinson - that he didn't need Panarin, and I think I was maybe wrong about that.

    I agree. I was just balancing the notion of ‘players like’ with specific players.

    This is why I question using Andy on the PP. Its not really in his wheelhouse.

    But he's earned it! :sarcasm: I do not think PP time should be used as a reward, it's a skill. I'm not sure if Andy has much to offer there, but he's been good at zone entries, which helps.

    Have him park himself in the crease and look for tips... Holmstrom did it for years and made bank.

    He certainly looked like he belonged out there last night.

    Anderson is going to shine playing with Cam and PLD

    Watching him play against Vegas tonight was amazing, all over the ice

    anyone who watched this game knows why the Bluejackets made the deal to protect him

    Love Andy and I'm glad we kept him. He's a guy I want on this team.

    I have questions about fit with him playing on the top line with Cam and PLD. It's true he played on the top line early last year. But that was with PLD and Bread - not Cam. Someone mentioned compared him with Tom Wilson playing on the Caps 1st line. But that line has Backstrom, a top level playmaker.

    Our current top line consists of 3 really good players. But the playmaker of the group is Bread rather than the center. Now PLD is an excellent all around center worthy of a top line slot. But he's not a playmaker, nor is Andy who is a scorer. My question: to maximize the goal production Cam and PLD already provide, is a winger with playmaking skills needed?

    I'll get chastised for this, but why not Wennberg? He's probably the next most skilled playmaker on the team, is defensively responsible, and has been productive on the top line before. If we don't add anyone, I think he's a fit.

    Josh is a tremendous player, I think it'll be great if we can add a rush worthy center. Maybe Foudy is that guy?

    To be clear, what I was saying months ago was that it’s all about fit with line groupings,not to get caught up in play style and line assignment, and that if Wilson can play top line, so can Andy.

    The post does not compare the two players nor any of their teammates.

    I actually agree with you about Wennberg. Adding St.Louis to give him an outlet off the ice will hopefully get his head in the right place and he seems to slowly be gaining confidence. Hes going to be on this team for awhile so I say give him a chance to succeed because when he's on hs game he brings an element we desperately need

    I had multiple VGK fans come up to me during and after the game with their jaw on the floor asking who the hell #77 was.

    When Anderson is on, he could be a top liner. His problem isn't his skill, it's his consistency. I have doubts about him, PLD, and Cam being a line.

    Where do you all think his next contract going to be? Like Tuch, which I believe was 6 years at 4.5 per?

    I would say that would be a fine contract in a year, pretty team friendly. Seems in line with his current production, and could be a steal if he reaches his potential. But keep in mind that his agent is an ass hat, so negotiations probably won't be easy.

    Tuch produces more assets than Andy, Andy slight edge in goals. Tuch is producing at a 65 pts per 82 games this year, Andy at 43. Andy has another year before contract so he can improve his numbers although I don't think his assets go up enough to get him to 65 pt level, Cap goes up. All in all, excluding his agent, I think 4.5 to 5 mill will be in the ballpark unless Andy goes for 30 goals next year. Term will also factor in.

    He'll do his best Boone impression in a contract year, and hit 40 goals. Just a hunch.

    How untouchable is he? Would love him in Boston after seeing him in the playoffs. Major respect to your team

    I would say he is ‘unless as part of a deal for Pastrnak’ untouchable.
