    Good point here ... Not sure how this works without trading Ghost ... Hagg is way too cost effective to move at this point, and we play much better AV system mandated defense with Hagg

    Provorov didn’t even make a “who is the best NHL defenseman top 25 list” put out there by NHL Network ... obviously a joke because of defenders who were good 7 years ago still on the list but ... man, no acknowledgement nationally

    Werenski was on the list tho ...

    To many Dmen someone needs to go.

    Morin has such a remote chance to play, he can probably be dropped from that list ... people want to try to cut Patty out of the lineup but will happily pencil Morin, the most injury prone player ever (not to mention no talent) into a potential roster spot

    That's why I listed him last, he has a chance to play but it's very remote. Patty should start the year as the 4C depending on how he plays he could be moved up to 3C. I'd start the year with Laughton as 3C and move Frost to wing (not that I want to but he needs to be in the top 9) and with Couts Hayes Patty down the middle there is no place for him. If he starts the year at 3C what do you do with Patty if he proves he's ready for more minutes?

    I slot Patty into 3C immediately. He handled 2C when he was 20 years old ... he will be fine, and significantly better than Laughton. Patty is wasted as a 4C and needs to be in a scoring role.

    Trying to ease him back into game play. When he's ready move him up to 3C. Maybe he's ready out if camp. That would be great.

    Almost 0 chance Morin plays. He has to prove me can stay healthy and play in the AHL before ever remotely considering him playing in the NHL.

    hagg has some of the worst numbers of all defensemen in the nhl. Him and braun are going to be a disaster. book it

    Hagg kind of defies analytics. He has some of the worst advanced metrics in the league, but his on ice results based stats have always been slightly above league average. I think the sample size is large enough with Hagg at this point that analytics can't really tell the value of what Hagg brings to a hockey team in their current state. Braun on the other hand, is an absolute train wreck at even strength. If he's your 6/7 swing defender it's fine, but we already know he's going to have a significant role as long as he plays for AV.
