Ryan McDonagh
P.K. Subban
Yannick Weber
Pavel Valentenko
Alexei Yemelin
M Carle

The way I see them...

The most potential 1-McDonagh 2-Yemelin(but he may never come) 3-Subban 4-Fischer 5-O'byrne

The most advanced...

1-Yemelin 2-O'byrne 3-Valentenko 4-McDonagh 5-Carle

Role on the team...

Ryan everything pretty well #2 type who play PP Pk and late minutes
P.K. Subban...2nd pair guy who is mostly offensive, average defensively, plays a lot of PP
Yannick Weber...PP specialist who is #4-5
Pavel Valentenko...shutdown #2-3 guy
Alexei Yemelin...similar to McDonagh but more physical but not as skilled
M Carle...see Weber but not as good 2 way #3 guy who chips in offensively
O'byrne...big physical stay at home guy, #3-4
Paquet...have not seen him in 2-3 years, solid #5-6 from what I hear
