Name your two PP units.

Well, I think it's fair to say that 5 of the 8 spots are no brainers. Then you'd ideally like to see Marleau, Kapanen and Johnsson all get some time as well.

But it shouldn't be set in stone and over the course of a long season you'd like to have options.

I don't disagree with you there.  My PP units only had 1 question mark, and before Ennis signed it was Kapanen/Leivo as the placeholder.  Kapanen will be used quite a bit on the PK and typically Babcock likes to keep guys on one special team and not both.  Tavares and Johnsson seem to be the guys who will be the exception to that rule next season.

Well, I guess Ennis at $650K is easier to fit into the cap than $925K for Leivo.

He is not really a stats type of signing either with roughly average relative Fenwick in the last couple years.  About 49% in his career.  Dubas can now say that he relies on the eye test instead of those newfangled stats.

Low risk, high reward.  Just the kind of signings that should be done on the margins of the forwards.

High reward being somewhat relative here.

When I first read it, I thought it was Ryan Ellis.

Point taken.  Say, higher than a low reward.

Don't see much of a downside. He works out - ok cool. If he sucks he's benched very easily.

Or sent to the AHL where he'd probably dominate.

It's not low risk it's zero risk. Other than a contract spot he won't even count against the cap if they throw him in the minors
