    No AJF. They are hiding him to slip through or trading him.

    Eller sick so CMM will be 3C.

    Will be interesting if they play Mantha or more likely Brown as 1RW.

      I would prefer Brown at 1RW as I think he is more aggressive and keeps his head in the game. Mantha mentally takes off to many shifts to be a true 1RW. If the 1st line with Brown is humming along when Wilson comes back does he go to the @nd line? Next season could be real interesting With Wilson, Protas, Mantha and if they resign Brown to who plays RW on which line. BUt really going to be interesting until either Brown or Mantha steps up and takes it this year.
