We do seem to be doing rather well on our own. Plus we don’t have to deal with all the trolls in this thread.

I envision that if there are no players added for the top 6 before camp. The only issue I have with that it most likely means Ladd is playing(anchoring) with Barzal again.

Or perhaps

Ho Sang-Barzal-Eberle
Lee-Beauvillier-Bailey

Put the puck in the goalies feet and thats about all the chemistry you need with Lee

But (frank), I am going to miss that JT power move from below the goal line with Lee cleaning up the rebound

- NYIDRIVE4FIVE


True to a point, but I can’t help but feel Lee would be best suited to a less speedy/unpredictable C.

I haven’t bothered to look, but I can imagine how intolerable the Leaf fans have been.

I'm hoping Ho Sang gets his game/head together we can use him. At this point I'm not even factoring him into anything. The guy doesn't seem to like direction from anyone not sure how long that'll last with our current management? Snow who was probably absent and hard to find had an issue with him

This is of course a make or break season for him with us the kid is 24 not 19.

That would be a fun line to watch but you have two guys that love dishing it and not finishing though Barzal started shooting towards the end of the season.

The two that were trolling on there yesterday were an embarrassment even to Leaf fans. That's hard to do

Only other thing I can think of is Nelson-Barzal-Eberle. It’d probably work, so long as Nelson decided to shoot.

I don't think Ho Sang is ready for top line minutes. I'd rather have him on the 3rd line. I think they are still looking for a player to play with Barz and Ebs.

Nelson isn't fast enough to play with those two. Barzal would have to do laps in the offensive zone until Nelson gets to the top of the faceoff circle.

I get their point, but they don't seem to understand that we are more upset about the way he left than the fact that he left.

Which is exactly why Ladd was so painful to watch on that line.

If he utilized his shot it could be interesting but like Jimmy pointed out hes not exactly a speed demon hes not Ladd slow though...

Would have rather another goaltender but I'm excited to see if he can surprise. Another player with a lot to prove and a chip on his shoulder. Lameriello pretty much said yeah we got him but there wasn't anyone else available so there's that

He's on a one year contract so he'll being trying to play his way into more money. That's always good. They've already said they are going to focus on playing better defense so he shouldn't be facing 40 shots a night. It could work out.

Agreed. Using the Sabres as a measuring stick for him isn't fair either that team is a (frank)ing disaster not that we're all that great but there was a lot of negativity in that room from what I've read. Guy likes to compete that I know so that's good. We shall see...

I’m concerned about Lee. His chemistry with Barzal (small sample size admittedly) was practically nonexistent. I wonder if maybe it would be best to put Beauvillier as 2C and use Lee as his LW?
- Wildschwein


I kinda feel like with Trotz coming in and JT leaving it's just gonna turn into a reassessment of all players. New system gonna be played, only time will tell who goes where and how they fit in.

As for Lee think he might end up becoming apart of the second line now, whatever that may end up being. Safe to say Barzy's the #1c and would think Trotz will keep Ebs with him since they had chemistry last season. Think the only time you'll see Lee and Barzy playing together is on the PP

Sadly there are too many question marks for right now... but I don't think that's a bad thing. Makes me a lil curious to see if Barry can change the likes of Ladd, Bailey and Nelson.
