It’s a much faster game that caters to younger forwards anyways, so staying young and revolving forwards, while having the best D-Corp in the League who can also provide offence seems like the best way to go AFAIC </div></div>
Yes, I think in general building from the net out has worked well for Boston, and they should keep doing it. But one has to strike a balance somewhere.

This probably wasn't your point, but I think this kind of exemplifies what I am thinking in terms of the last spot in Boston's top 4D. They could either go with an expensive known quantity and give up assets to get it (Hanafin), or they could roll the dice with Lohrei and keep more cap space free for the next ~6 years. Lohrei doesn't need to reach Hanafin's level for the move to pay off if they can use that salary to improve their scoring. With that said, Lohrei does need to improve his defensive game for the move to actually work out. I don't think the Bruins are in win-now mode, so I'd rather roll the dice.
