Seems like they kind of went all-in on the downfield athletes, though I am less familiar with the Canadian player pool these days. Excellent players, of course, but who are the natural handlers? Toly and Underhill among the men are pretty clear, but who else? Maybe I’m just preemptively missing Derek Alexander’s scoobers…

Tim Tsang is also a handler type as well; on the womens side Rachel Moens and Audrey St-Arnaud are the only handlers I believe.

Thanks, I’m not familiar with Tsang and St-Arnaud. Moens I’ve thought of as more of a 3–hell of a powerful thrower, but so athletic as to be kind of wasted in a strict handler role.

More Scarth; less not Scarth
