Unless we sign another top 9 center then Henrique will be a top 9 center. Brunner or Raymond would be a 3rd line winger
Depends on the internal marketing. The whole top6-bottom6 thing isn't as meaningful in 2013 as it was 10 years ago. If the Devils can roll 3 super strong forward lines, why not try and get that done?
For example - this group would be stronger than counting on Josefson to come through as an important 3rd line center. But hey, it's also a valid point that many FAs will not want to sign unless offered a top 6 spot, so we'll see. But I don't think it's out of the question or anything to try and lure someone to be part of a deep group.
