Talbot said the Flyers want to use him in an Ian Laperriere type role...he won't be on the 3rd line.

JvR-Giroux-Jagr
Hartnell-Briere-Voracek
Simmonds-Schenn-Wellwood
Betts-Talbot-Nodl/Shelley

This. Wellwood and Gustafsson just got added to the official roster on NHL.com.

ok you HAVE to make a JGJ line...like you HAVE to.

JvR-G-JGR
Hartnell-Briere- Couturier
Simmonds-Schenn-Voracek
Nodl-Talbot-Tostito
*Betts
*Shelley

In an ideal world...

I'd rather have Betts on the wing than Sestito.

edit: that 3rd line could get absolutely abused in their own zone. As will the 2nd line...though that's likely going to end up being unavoidable.

JvR-Giroux-Jagr
Hartnell-Briere-Voracek
Read-Schenn-Simmonds
Betts-Talbot-Nodl
Shelley

Pronger-Carle
Timonen-Coburn
Meszaros-Lilja
Bart

I could see Read being replaced by Testwuide or Holmstrom on the 3rd line. Similarly I could see Gus replacing Lilja as the 6th D-man moving Lilja to 7th and Bart to the phantoms. If Gus doesn't get the 6th spot then I think they'll keep him on the phantoms. After a very good rookie season in the AHL last year they will want him playing everyday.

It would be pure guessing at this stage but Bill Meltzer, who has a column on HockeyBuzz and is generally respected, had this last week in a column:

Quote:

As things stand as of early this morning, the Flyers' opening night starting lineup would look something like this if they went into the season as currently constituted:

JVR - Giroux - Jagr
Hartnell - Briere - Voracek
Nodl - Schenn - Simmonds
Shelley - Talbot - Betts

Pronger - Carle
Coburn - Timonen
Meszaros - Lilja

Bryzgalov
[Bobrovsky]

Extras: One young forward (Sestito, Holmstrom, etc), one young defenseman (Bartulis, Gustafsson, etc)

Snipsnap12 07-07-2011 06:47 PM

JVR-Giroux-Jagr
Voracek-Briere-Hartnell
Simmonds-Schenn-Read
Nodl-Betts-Talbot


Pronger-Carle
Coburn-Timonen
Gus-Mez

This is what I would like to see. From what I have been reading Matt Read has really stood out at the prospects camp, and looks very good. I think he is ready to take on a 3rd line role, and him and nodl can move up and down.

THis likely will not happen because they wont bury shelley. Unless they rotate nodl and shelley on the scratch sheet.
