I really hope Rod runs Svech-Aho-Necas come playoff time once we get Tro and potentially TT back. 
 

I could even see a Svech-Tro-Necas line before then too. Once tro is back. 

Yeah definitely can't break up Aho and Necas any time soon, their chemistry is just too good. Can't believe how well we've played without TT and Tro. With Necas emerging, Nino producing, Staal producing more offense, etc. our forwards are a much bigger strength than I thought coming into the year, once fully healthy. And with Ned emerging in net and our D group obviously being top 5 in the league, we really don't have many holes this year... Could still use a bit more toughness and physicality in our bottom 6, though Paquette has been a great addition in those aspects and Martinook has been playing better than last year, even if the points aren't piling up. Tampa in the playoffs likely with Kucherov back will still be a monster, but we really should be one of a handful of favorites for the cup this year, and our future going forward is frigging unbelievably bright.

Staal is going to have to step up closer to the playoffs and pull a Williams with a fight and take the two games or w/e. I don’t know who we replace besides foegele(who I think is just slumping offensively) to get another offensive tough guy. I did like nino stepping up to the plate to defend Aho though. Nino strikes me as a cold clocker if he ever actually got in a fight.

Call me crazy but I don't think a guy coming off hip surgery and not having played all season will instantly return to form....

Maybe not MVP but he’ll be Average at least.

I agree to some degree, but I do think by the time they/we get to the 2nd round he'll be good enough at that point to improve their team, and even without him they're an absolute force. We'll see how it plays out, I'm not scared of the Lightning by any means but they are the defending champs and were 1st in the league until tonight...
