Depth. But Personally i think this it means we cannot afford a legitimate 3rd line C, and it's Miller and Lindberg to fight it out.

Otherwise Hartford have Miiler, Lindberg, Mueller, Tarnasky, McCarthy, Yogan, St.Croix from the Rangers (positions as per the website), let alone their own signings (like Hensick last year).

I have Miller 3rd line C and Lindberg 13 F as it stands currently. Let pre season begin already!

I'm yet to be impressed by JT Miller. Honestly. Maybe it's because he hasn't gotten a legit shot doing what he has done best in Hartford in regard to being put in situations where he could score. I don't know. I'm expecting it to be between him and Lindberg for for the 3C shot also.

I'm starting to wonder how many rookies we're going to have on our roster. I know we lost a few guys from Hartford last year, but how many veteran replacements are the Wolfpack going to need?

224 lbs I believe, not 204. 14 fighting majors last season. He adds some nice toughness that the Pack were now lacking up front. Adds a little offense too.

They lost a lot of guys.

Enforcer AHL signing. Jason Wilson replacement?

Right, but this signing puts us at 48 contracts according to capgeek. Now, Duclair and Skjei and maybe others might not end up counting, but you'd think we want some flexibility considering we still have a few spots open on the big club.

Edit: Check that, Skjei isn't signed yet. Most likely Duclair slides. Not sure if anyone else does.

Personally he develops a lot of quality scoring chances compared to the TOI and positions he's put into.

I thought he showed improvement in his later games. If the team wasn't so stacked and playing important no-mistakes allowed games JTM might have had more of a chance, IMO.

As for Tarnasky ... some toughness in Hartford probably would come in handy, they seemed a little soft, ex-mcIlrath, last year, or did I forget somebody?

I guess our farm system really sucks. We've spent more time signing scrubs this season than I can ever remember.
