^Really a slap in the face to Patty, who I think will be gone after this year (if not the deadline)
Also, Torrey Mitchell is out for a month because of lingering issues with his leg
I do think Thornton could make a slightly better Captain, but eh.. it's close.
Opening day roster is as follows:
Nevermind. According to the Sharks site, they've updated that.. and Mitchell will be on IR, with Ferriero and Demers making the team -- Both will play tonight, apparently. (Edits are in bold).
Check out the lines, too.
During today’s morning skate in Colorado, Head Coach Todd McLellan had the team in the following lines:
Heatley – Thornton – Setoguchi
Marleau – Pavelski – Clowe
Shelley – Nichol – Ortmeyer
McGinn – Malhotra – Ferriero
Vlasic – Blake
Murray – Boyle
Huskins – Demers
Nabokov - Greiss"
I think it makes sense. Nice Balance. Nice checking line. I'm interested in seeing how much McGinn has improved -- I really liked this kid last year. I'm also intrigued with Ferriero, wondering what he'll do for us, as well as our new line of Defense.
