Literally the player Ottawa just drafted to fill their most glaring hole upfront, why not add the flashy young winger/centre to the list of potential candidates. Stuetzle has been proving people wrong for as long as he could breathe, okay that’s an overstatement but Timmy could be very capable of filling this void immediately. His skills are beyond what any of these other centre’s can even dream of providing offensively and who’s to say he doesn’t step into camp and immediately start spinning heads, much like he did as a centre at the World Junior’s for Germany this past December.
Perhaps he outgrows the left-wing position immediately, or a player like Brady Tkachuk watches him in camp and demands a spot on his line. Truly the one player on this list that has game-breaking capability and instantly makes those around him that much better from an offensive perspective. Ultimately, the 2021 season is about growth and development for Ottawa, why not grow your superstars together?
