Mike Brown and Colby Armstrong hold strong in the bottom six, but everything else has changed. The two have finally been surrounded by quality energy players, and it's paying off for the club.
There has been some rotation, which helps keep players fresh and healthy competition present, but overall the group has been great.
The additions of Dupuis and Steckel give the team a new look, and are the strength of the penalty kill. Steckel is a boss in face-offs. Bozak looks like a perfect third line centre. He's so good defensively, but also has that offensive upside. He and Frattin are important because they fit the bottom six role, yet can fill in on top line duties when injuries arise.
Orr and Rosehill get a few looks here and there, which is fine. Their roles have diminished to where they should be.
Look for our PK to vastly improve over the course of the season, and for the bottom six forwards to contribute offensively.
