The Canadian will need help in attack, but he is not starting from scratch either.

Kent Hughes constantly hears about it and is aware of it himself: the Canadian will one day have to find a way to find a top 6 attacker to make his attack more formidable.

Management will attempt to resolve this issue over the next 16 months. That is, if not this summer, it will be next. But while it hopes to add cutting-edge talent, the team will not sit idly by. You must continue to develop the items you have at hand.

It’s a lost season for Kirby Dach, and Alex Newhook will have missed much of it due to a serious injury. But every day, the top line of Nick Suzuki, Cole Caufield and Juraj Slafkovsky is able to make progress. And he has just reminded us in the last two games that CH is not starting from scratch in terms of interesting attackers.

They were sent to the lions’ den on Saturday against Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers, then faced Nathan MacKinnon’s line on Monday night in a 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

MacKinnon’s trio certainly managed to score a goal at their own expense, but while no one would say they have the skill level of the Avalanche’s big stars, the fact that they stood toe-to-toe with some of the most dominant players on the tour is a encouraging sign.
