Maroon-McDavid-Caggiula
Lucic-Draistaitl-Cammalleri
Khaira-Strome-Slepyshev
Puljujarvi-Letestu-Kassian

They're missing RNH, but still that's dreadful. I honestly don't understand what all the hype was about. That has to be one of the worst collection of wingers in the entire league.

Not that this makes a big difference but I think the hype had to do with seeing Draisaitl as a winger, Maroon as being able to build on what he did last year and the idea that Puljujarvi might live up to his pedigree.

He took a slapshot to the head in their last game. Dropped to the ice and took awhile to get back up. Didn't go through concussion protocol:

I've always liked Giroux. He reminds me of Marner if Marner was a centre. Glad he's bounced back this season.

If there's cap space left after Tavares I'd totally do that.

Pretty nice to see the Sabres absolutely stuffing* the Bruins right now.

* its 4-1 with 5 min to go. The Bruins have all the shots and none of the goals.

Would be a shame if they lost home-ice advantage in the playoffs because of this.

The Flyers now lead the Metropolitan division. They lost 10 in a row early in the season. They are 26-8-3 since then.

Caps/Pens first round series would be fun.

I hope the Leafs continue to injure their way to the top!
