Gagne-Briere-Lupul (quick sniper line)

Hartnell-Richards-Downie (hate to play against this line)

Van Riemsdyk-Carter-Giroux (dangle,make you look dumb and score)

Cote-Metropolit-Asham (OUCH!)

What happens to Upshall?? I'm not sure. Traded for goalie prospect? Traded at draft ala Umberger? Either way...2009/2010 sure will be fun!

If we can sign him for cheap Upshall would still be a huge asset to this team. He would probably fit best on the 3rd line with Carter to make it a speed line and then move JVR up to play on Richard's wing (he'd be a great influence on JVR). But then Downie is out of the mix... Either way, this is an absolutely wonderful problem to have..
