Except if we re-sign Abby we'd then have two extra forwards on the roster. Nyquist could still be sent to GR, but there's still at least one forward to move, assuming we don't try to add another top 6 forward.
always a possibility....yet Holland's not that kind of guy. Could happen but I don't expect it. In fact I very much see him standing pat. After all what did he want?
a scorer in the top 6: Brunner
grit in the bottom 6: Tootoo
scoring depth: Sammy
replacement for stewie: Quincey
replacement for Lids: Suter
Given Holland's comment about 'kids not developing', I have a feeling we may move Emmerton and Mursak, though I wouldn't be totally shocked if we tried getting them through waivers. Depending on who we sign we could also move someone higher paid like Flip and/or Cleary.
Long story short, I don't think we're done at forward, and Sammy/Tootoo/Brunner are just giving us more options.
