with that in mind, here is my list of the 5:
Korpikoski - will replace Shanahan
Anisimov - can replace any of our crappy 4th liners(Hollweg, Betts, Sjostrom)
Byers - can replace another one of our crappy 4th liners(might move up the lines eventually)
Sanguinetti - replaces Rozsival or Mara(whoever leaves)
LeNeveu - could battle Vally for backup job
I'm going with these guys because I think we need size at forward and Korpi, Anisimov and Byers are all big guys. We also need more scoring and Korpi has a good scoring touch. We need guys who can go to the net and thats Byers. Anisimov would just be a great replacement for Betts I think. Sanguinetti is a must for me, we need a clear offensive dman.
My lines would then be:
Avery - Dubinsky - Jagr
Dawes - Gomez - Korpikoski
Prucha - Drury - Callahan
Byers - Anisimov - Sjostrom
Staal - Sanguinetti
Tyutin - Girardi
Mara - Backman
we let Shanahan, Straka, Rozsival, Malik, Strudwick, Hollweg go. Vally can go to AHL.
Oh, so apparently Sanguinetti can just step right in and become 1st pairing defenseman like snapping your fingers?
