I agree when Laughton comes back it is subject to change for the better. In fact i really expect it to change in say a week or two and Frost getting the call up.
And i'm not even counting on Patrick anymore.

I don't hate these, though I would much rather Giroux be put back on the wing. I understand that isn't easy to do given our current lack of adequate centers. On paper, JVR/G/Buzz work quite well as a grinder/playmaker/sniper trio. I kind of worry about their possession metrics though. They'll have to get mostly o-zone star
