@GreekGod @Jmessih Well if he can regain his prior form with Florida he could warrant being on the top line. This allows us to spread the scoring out even more. although I don't think it happens but it would be cool to see.

@barjv01 Shoot. That's not a bad idea either. Spread out the weapons among all those lines.

@deedrag The problem with your idea is that his extra weight also creates a stronger normal force. This increases friction (Force of friction = Normal force x the coefficient of dynamic friction), which would actually hold him back from moving where he wants to. But nice try ;).

@Yan28 @gottabe_KD For all we know the Wild were turned off by the price of Reimer. Reimer has carried this team before and if Bernier falters has the ability to take the No 1 spot back.

@Robbies @sniperstar It certainly has a lot of skill but let's see how it works out. If this line up is ever used.

Lupul - Bozak - Kessel   18 min
JVR - Kadri - Clarkson    17 min
Komarov - Kontiola - Winnik 14 min
Booth - Holland - Santorelli.  11 min
Frattin - Ashton waiting for when someone gets injured or doesn't perform.

@Burtonboy @sniperstar @Xxxxxnew It is. Makes planning lines harder but it's so fun to be able to play around like this.

@dlb Mad @sniperstar Yeah the guy has great control while skating. Can stick handle at high speeds and seems to go to the net. He also looks good at making those 5-10 feet passes.

@Burtonboy @sniperstar @Xxxxxnew Crap... This is actually hard to make lines for now. Clarkson up on the 2nd line maybe and Winnik with Komarov and Kontiola. Or perhaps Kontiola on that 2nd line or Santorelli. So many combinations!

@dlb Mad @sniperstar That one really impressed me too. He looks to have a wicked 1T on the PP too. Watching some other highlights of him.

@Xxxxxnew For sure. If we rolled a bottom six of:

Komarov - Kontiola - Clarkson
Booth - Holland - Santorelli I'd be extremely happy. Those two lines are interchangable and can play more of less depending on how they are that game.

I heard he was skilled. But watching this video shows you how much skill he really has. Jeez.

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy Komarov and Winnik in my opinion will be used how McClement was in the shortened season. 8-10 minutes of ES play a night and then another 2-4 on the PK. So they will get their ice time.

@gottabe_KD  I think part of it may also be for a guy like Phil who doesn't seem to slim down. He's a bit thicker than most and that can help him take a few more hits then say a guy like Crosby who is probably slimmer than Phil. So in that sense the extra thickness helps him stay healthy. 

But it also has to do with their style of play. Kessel selectively goes into the corners and seems to avoid going in when it would involve muscling another guy off the puck. He goes into the corners when he has a clear cut path to winning the puck or during the play offs.

@Cameron19 @Pent_House @B_Leaf A lot of talk Nylander is going back to the SHL. But I can see that Biggs may not get too much time with a line up that stacked.

@jimmyg65 @sniperstar @Burtonboy Well I guess for the average reader they would think that. I've watched the interviews and generally dismiss MSM so this didn't really bother me. But now that you mention it I can see what he's done very clearly. Although I don't think it really affected my view of Kessel.

Last season, the 26-year-old tied a career high with 37 goals and led the Leafs in scoring with 80 points. Since the 2010-11 campaign, only Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos and Corey Perry have scored more goals and only Claude Giroux has more total points. 
This is from an article talking about Kessel. Damn.

@DylanJ When Lupul and Kessel were a pair they were both going at a ppg pace. It isn't a bad idea to put them together.

@Jmessih The problem I find is that everything is hearsay. There are no direct quotes from any players or management. And as such the people who were at the clinic have probably mixed in their own opinions along with what Spott said. As such you get this atrocity of an article.

@peterbleafs @sniperstar @ Keon @deedrag Honestly, I think he was just played too high up the depth chart. He looked bad in a top 4 role and was apparently injured for much of the season? I don't know how much truth there is to that but if true I wouldn't move him so quickly. 
He was dominant in a bottom pairing role.

@deedrag @sniperstar Well 2-3 years is all we really need to wait for those guys. Leivo might take Lupul's spot in the top 6 in 2-3 years. Engvall sounds like he could become a strong candidate for a top 6 role if he becomes all he can be.

@Jmessih @ Keon @barjv01 @sniperstar Viktor Loov - ... He moves the puck well with strong passing and also has the ability to skate the puck out of his own zone. - Hockey's Future. 

Also from all accounts it sounds like Loov is just a straight up good skater.

Polak has been described as a good skater for a big guy.
