Good analysis ...

I would add the following: those individuals who have skills but the mindset to screen, move without the ball and work the ground when needed. At attack you need two shooters, two feeders and two handlers (i.e., facilitate ball movement either by passing or pick and roll switches). A crease attackman/finisher or someone that can work in close in a crowd is absolutely necessary (read Cormier). Shellenberger and Moore are dodger/feeder/finisher. Connor is not quite all of those but very close (consistency is the issue or maybe confidence). Cormier is the 1st designated finisher (primarily from close range). I like Dickson moving to attack, keeping Shellenberger at midfield (matchup nightmare or taking best/second best defenseman and leaving someone to get abused by others). I would have Garno at midfield (as the 2nd designated finisher from longer range). In this rotation you have dodgers, feeders and finishers. Of course you need at least four attackmen and at least five at offensive midfield. That is the question right now: Who claims the fourth/fifth attackmen spots and the two - three other midfield spots. Returning players, first years or grad transfers?
