My Opinion: I’m actually not worried about who will kill penalties next season. The players that are fighting for spots are ones that are good two-way players. Among Jordan Staal, Dwyer, Nash, Palushaj, Welsh, Lindholm and Victor Rask an offense penalty kill group will be found.
The next two holes in the offense are definitely huge. A defensive winger will need to be found for Jordan Staal’s line and a decent scoring winger for the third line with Lindholm and Jeff Skinner.
