As for lines...without a trade or two we don't have a lot of open spots....
Modin X Nash
X Brassard Zherdev
Chimera X Fritsche
Boll Malhotra Novotny
Spots for Voracek and Brule are likely. If so that leaves one opening and an extra (Picard? Lidstrom?) That's not a huge change but I still contend that if we improve the D transition game you'll see the skill level of our forwards improve. Just my opinion.
Maybe Malhotra gets moved, Brule slides to the 3rd line with Fritsche moving to C or the 4th line wing with Novotny at 4th line C? Maybe Fritsche brings the power game to line 2 with Z and Brass opening a spot for Voracek. Maybe Brule does get moved (I personally feel he's played 100X better since his recall).
Either way we still have a glaring need at C and I won't even go into our D troubles (3 UFA's and not much left behind that....OUCH). If we move players it better be for some proven players on D or some ready to step in prospects....on D.
