He’ll be signed. Makes no sense to name him Captain for a partial season, only to trade him at the deadline.

I think Lee gets signed. I would be very surprised if he is unsigned at the deadline.

Seems likely that Nelson is back also, he seems to be Trotz's favorite all-around center. He could move back to the 3C spot if they were to sign or acquire a guy with a bit more offensive upside to play behind Barzal.

I have no issue with Nelson as 3C. 2C is probably not his best spot.

Nelson is actually playing very well and has seemed to bring consistency to his game under Trotz. Seems to know what’s expected of him and his role. I would like to see him signed for sure.

I can see Duchene and now Benn if truly available in Lou sights. Duchene wouldn’t cost you a piece if you could get him to sign here as a FA that’s a big advantage for me signing Duchene.

Not ignoring the fact that team-defense has vastly improved, but I'd really like to see some money spent on the blueline in the next 2 years.

Benn is absolutely not available unless he's so angry that he asks for a trade, which seems like a massive long shot.

Honestly I think with Toews showing he’s an NHL regular, ( might be jumping the gun) I think when Hickey comes back the top 6 are pretty solid. I think you’ll see a 2 way center with good FO skills like Duchene and maybe even a goalie before you see a top 2 dman traded for. Now if they grow in the next couple of years and a true top 2 is needed to go after the Cup I could see them go all in for that piece to push them over the top.

That said Lou will trade for Doughty tomorrow

No they had it planned. She didn’t have money so the others had to pay

It's a reasonably well-rounded top-6 but there would be lots of room for improvement still. Not saying it has to be this year or offseason.
