    12 Forwards, 6 Defensemen, 2 Goalies Active

    If you are looking to take a flyer, I would be looking at Bonino. Everthing I have read (here and other reports) states that the 2nd line centre is his to lose. Bennett is still a work in progress. I think Bonino is closer and less of a risk at this point.

    A flyer would be Bonino because it appears he is locked in as the second line center. Bennett is still trying out. Now, if he sticks, he'll be the far more productive player riding shotgun on Gino's line. I would scoop Bonino and monitor Bennett's situation - be ready to pounce.

    Bonino on this one.

    He had a couple of good games last season w/ the Ducks. So, some sort of chemistry and familiarity there. Hopefully, a little confidence rubbed off from the Italian league to the NHL. If he sticks in 48 games, patrolling line 2/3..im guesstimating 10-15pts...max 20 if he's firing on all cylinders.

    Im unsure if Bennett will stick with Tangradi, Jeffrey, Sutter in the mix for top 9 spots.

    Thanks for the help....

    I am now considering - do I drop Devante Smith-Pelley or Chimera (or both and grab both these guys?) I see these two roster spots as easily replaceable...kind of riding the hot hand unless I find a diamond in the rough...

    You know... people don't discuss it enough, but if your league allows streaming (consistent day-in, day-out changes), then it is a smart move to commit your mind that a slot is just for that. There is a lot of value in just working-the-schedule for starts.

    Anyways, I'd go with Bonino and drop DSP.

    Bennett/DSP are diamond in the rough when the right opportunity comes along. But since your goal is depth for this season/ride the hot hand in particular...take a flyer on Bonino and Chimera (this veteran dude can potentially produce some pts with you know who)
