Well catching the Muckler press conference, it seems that Arnason is slated to be our number 2 center. Well if he does have the goods to play with Havlat and Schaeffer, then that would be great.
We then have Smolinski, Fisher and Neil who are a proven combination as our third line. And yes it probably means Eaves going back to play with Vermette and Kelly, hopefully with Vermette as center.
Schubert becomes our number one depth defenceman. Varada becomes a healthy scratch. In relation to our line-up in our dominant pre-Nov 30 days, Arnason takes over center from Vermette, and we now have a very beefed up fourth line.
It will be interesting to see how things shake out.
