And they have the option of having one unit being more of a shooting power play and the other being more of a passing/set up style. This group, despite being a little older, has the ability to flat out wear opponents down. They will have to go with two units with this much talent, which means that with a few shifts less on the power play, Sid and Geno could double shift with the 4th line occasionally, meaning they could go with 7 d using Eaton exclusively as a PK specialist.
The trickle down effects of this Iginla trade are just incredible. Bylsma has so many options.
