The roles for the team’s RWs are pretty clearly deliniated it seems. Two primary scoring wingers in Palushaj and Gallagher on the top two lines, Sortini buried on the 4th line and the 3rd unit split between Leblanc and his injury replacement Nattinen. Only the 3rd has been positive on even strength so far and none of the RWs are seeing big penalty kill time by the looks of it (I know Nattinen has gotten some but has yet to be scored on).

On offense, the role of the team’s right wings looks pretty clear, this is where the squad’s top shooters/goal scorers live. 3 players with 3+ shot per game rates is nothing to sneeze at, although one is out with injury. The .3 goals per game rate looks sustainable on that basis, even if Palushaj and Gallagher end up being low percentage shooters and should be good for a pair of 20 goal scorers.
