The top contenders to be G's LW? Really?

According to Hextall: Vinny, Umberger, Schenn and Raffl are the top candidates to play with Giroux and Voracek on the top line.

- Vinny utterly failed at LW last season (He's be better suited at RW)

- Ditto for Baby Schenn

- Umberger doesn't belong in the top 6

- Raffl lacks finishing prowess.

On top of that, a Right Hand shot would be MUCH preferred to snipe set ups from Giroux/Voracek. ALL of the above mentioned players are ALL left hand shots.

Berube said that he likes a physical edge on the top line. Wayne Simmonds is pretty much a more talented version of Hartnell and has a Right hand shot. Matt Read isn't as physical as Simmonds but he has a much better shot and scores a majority of his goals from the left side.
