L Austin Watson Face Mask. Brown and Brannstrom?
I quickly scanned our rosters and prospects and was interested in knowing. . .why do I keep hearing that prospects like Brown and Formenton and Brannstrom have a shot at the NHL this year? I feel there is no room. . .In no particular order (and only using "higher" praised prospects) https://www.ottawafansstore.com/Erik_Brannstrom_Pillow_Cover-142. . .underline means most likely to be on team.C: Pageau, White, Tierny, Anisimov, Brown, Norris, ChlapikLW: Tkachuk, Duclair, Boedker, Ennis (I don't if he can go to Belleville or not), Abramov, Formenton, Paul (also a C), Balcers, CarconeRW: Batherson, Ryan, C. Brown, Varonneau, Davidsson, (Rodewald?)D: Hainsey, DeMelo, Chabot, Borowiecki, Zaitsev, Jaros, Wolanin, Lajoie, Brannstrom (Englund?, Aspirot?. . .and we still have Lassi Thompson, Docker and Tychionik upcoming).Forwards:The way I see it, we have 4 centres (Pageau, White, Tierny, Anisimov), we're over-stocked on LW. . .andmost likely Batherson gets one of the right wing positions https://www.ottawafansstore.com/Artem_Anisimov_Hoodie-63. . .so the only available space is one RW spot.So, either. . .A) White plays as a winger which opens up one Centre spot, orB) One of labelled "LW" plays the RW slot (Balcers is labelled as LW / RW) https://www.ottawafansstore.com/Anton_Forsberg_Pillow_Cover-94. . .which makes no space.That tells me that Formenton and Brown are AHL bound (which in my mind, they should be).Defense:If the 5 people I bolded and italicized are guaranteed spots, then I assume Jaros, Wolanin, Lajoie, and Brannstrom fighting for one spot. Open for discussion. I personally love the depth we have https://www.ottawafansstore.com/Filip_Gustavsson_T_shirt-36. As they say, it's a good problem to have.In a perfect world, they would of bought out Ryan and trade Boedker, but I know they're needed for the Cap
