Giguere-Oullet

Maybe that will work in real-life ?
This line-ups working great for me on NHL 2004:

Kariya-Fedorov-St.Louis
Heatley-Lemieux-Morrow
Leclerc-Draper-Richards
Chistov-McDonald-Laraques

Niedermayer-Ozolinsh
Rafalski-Salo
Kaberle(F)-Regehr

Giguere
Leclaire



Seriously, Chistov maybe should be given a shot on line #1. I'd like to see him with Fedorov, and maybe Lupul too. That could make for serious scoring from Lupul's side of things. Prospal and Sykora should stay together on a line, but I'm not sold on Rucchin. Pahlsson is a chance I'd like to see taken as 2nd line center, but it likely won't happen. Everyone needs the shot if they're going to break out offensively, and maybe for just a couple games in the preseason, but he needs that type of chance. If not, give Mac a shot at line 2, or trade/sign for that 2nd line center. Babs has got to let Rucchin know his job as 2nd line C is not secure. It did wonders for Vishnevski, and it could work for him.

Goals for offseason:

-Convince Louie Lams that Scott Niedermayer isn't worth 70 cents
-While BM's at it, convince him that Havelid is the future Paul Coffey
-Tell JFJ that they'll trade Gerber and a 3rd/2nd for Coliacavo, and then raise the price to straight up for Coliacavo once Belfour retires

Seriously...
-Do whatever it takes to pry Scott Niedermayer out of the swamp
-Trade(not over-pay) for Fedor Fedorov(a happier Sergei is a better Sergei)
-Get Ryan Smyth(now you can overpay) in a Ducks uni
