Nylander would be great, but I can't imagine Toronto giving him up.
As I mentioned, you can leave him exposed and protect Jaskin or somebody. I don't think Lehtera's getting taken anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
Still up in the air. Army went to watch him the other night and he was good. I think the Blues would like to turn him pro after the season.
Yeah, that's a possibility. You've got Lindbohm and Dunn, but I don't know that either factors in next season. I realize Lindbohm is at that point where he should be a factor, but I'm just not sold that the Blues see him in their immediate plans. The Blues are much stronger on the right, but likely losing Shattenkirk is going to affect that. So if he moves, you've got Bouwmeester, Edmundson and Gunnarsson on the left with Pietrangelo, Parayko and Bortuzzo on the right. And then of course, you've got the kids coming up. So decent depth, but probably still another body on that left side.
OK, one or two more, then I've got to jump on some stories.
I think looking for balance had a lot to do with it. You can criticize him for keeping him Lehtera on that line, but he's looking for three lines that can compete, so you're trying to even out the lines. But also, Hitch was one who said 26-91 didn't have any chemistry. Perhaps the analytics backed that up, I don't know, but they didn't try it much this season. It's worked for Yeo for one game, so we can't say yet that its' something that's going to stick.
Not sure about this year, my guess is next year.
Healthy and playing well, he's in their future plans as well.
I'll take his. At least he's got some hair. I forgot what hair felt like.
Oshie and Shattenkirk going to San Jose.
No, they're going to stick with what they've got for now.
You'll have to buy me a beer someday!
No problem, thanks to everyone for the questions! Chat with you next week.
