Tyler Toffoli is a natural right winger. He can play on the left wing, and he scores several goals when he moves to the left side of the ice. Nevertheless, he is used to lining up on the right and that is how his game is shaped. He only played a little on the other side, with the Kings.
Our questioning yesterday: by signing with the Canadian for four years, wouldn’t it be logical that he made it clear that he wanted to play on the right?
In an interview with the Montreal media, Toffoli however mentioned that he was comfortable playing on both sides and that he had mentioned it to the team during the negotiations. So there is no stress on that side.
#Habs Toffoli feels stylistically he would “fit in great” with any of Danault, Suzuki or Kotkaniemi. He’s played RW for the bulk of his career but occasionally moved to LW. In negotiations with Mtl he says he’d be willing to play either side.

Well. Now let’s ask someone else for their opinion. In an interview with 91.9 Sports, Antoine Roussel discussed his teammate and said quite clearly that according to him, it is on the right that Toffoli should play.
” With us, [Toffoli] was playing on the right and if I was a coach, I would leave him on the right! He’s so good people are going to love him and on the power play he was great too. I was disappointed to see him go. ”

We can therefore understand that he is more comfortable on his natural side, and that there is no need to move him to the left. If you want to get the best of this play, you will get it right.
So that puts the next ‘move’ of the Canadian into perspective. If Claude Julien decides to place Tyler Toffoli on the left, Joel Armia can stay on the right on the top-9. Otherwise, the Finn is not a fourth line player. So, Artturi Lehkonen and Paul Byron are the two players who could quit. Let’s bet on Byron, sincerely. But if Toffoli plays on his natural side, it becomes obvious that Armia will have to quit, unless he’s positioned to the left.
Very complicated, all that, but it should not be long before Marc Bergevin speaks with Claude Julien and makes a decision.
The Canadiens’ GM has said it won’t be difficult to get back below the cap, and he likely will soon.

The only other teams spending more than $10 million on goaltending are the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning.
