Top six:
Naslund - Gomez - Dubinsky
Dawes - Dury - Zherdev

Seems like Dubinsky would be a great addition to the line. He's already accustomed to playing first line minutes and has shown the ability to create turn overs and dig the puck out of the corners. He might make Naslund feel a bit.. safer I guess. This team is dying for an aggressive, gritty power-forward on the wings and I think Dubinsky is the guy we're looking for.

Bottom six:
Callahan - Fritsche - Sjostrom
Voros - Betts - Rissmiller

As we all know, Fritsche's face-off ability is questionable, but he could be a good temporary solution until Anisimov is ready.

Barring some pretty stellar performances across the board, I don't foresee any roster with our current players being a cup contender, but I think that lineup could make the playoffs.

This is all done assuming we don't make another move before the season begins.

i like those lines.....fritsche is okay at faceoffs, but we saw how dubinsky took off on faceoffs once he got on the rangers....i would assume drury, gomez, and betts helped him in that area so im sure he wouldnt be as bad.....and if he is callahan can be tried.....
