Didn't realize that Laich had dual eligibilty, I know on Yahoo he's only a center. Now it makes sense to me as to why he had Laich on his team. I agree when you have a player that is a center, that has winger eiligibility it's huge, as you can play then at wing along with your centers, to rack up a greater total of faceoff wins. But end of the day Fisher is a better player than him, and brings the same game to the table, but at a higher level.
Simmonds is also a great get, and there's nothing wrong with veterans Doan and Alfredsson, and young Brayden Schenn.
