Staal-Redden
Mara-Girardi
Kalinin-Potter/Pock/vet obtained for Roszy?

What I think will happen:

Naslund-Sundin-Zherdev
Dawes-Gomez-Drury
Sjostrom-Dubinsky-Callahan
Voros-Betts-Fritsche

Staal-Redden
Mara-Girardi
Kalinin-Potter/Pock/vet obtained for Rozsy?

If nothing changes:

Naslund-Gomez-Prucha (similar to what viper wanted but I'd try Prucha before Fritsche, I think he could turn it around if he gets opportunites a/k/a garbage goals)
Dawes-Drury-Zherdev
Sjostrom-Dubinsky-Callahan
Voros-Betts-Fritsche

Staal-Redden
Rozsival-Girardi
Kalinin-Mara

In all scenarios, Rissmiller and Orr are scratches up front and Pock is the 7th defenseman. And yes the first one is essentially a joke based off an Eklund rumor I know will never come true, but it never hurts to dream lol.
i agree with these lines....would be great to get gaborik but i dont think thats realistic....gomez was signed for a reason.....i like the second group of lines although i would really like to have zherdev play with gomez and drury as i think they will be the more dynamic pair compared to sundin and naslund

drury-gomez-zherdev
naslund-sundin-dawes
fritsche-dubinsky-callahan
sjostrom-betts-voros
rissmiller, orr, prucha

redden-rozsival
girardi-staal(shut-down pairing)
mara-kalinin

the top two pairings would be more a 1a and 1b pairings where they would get abou the same amount of ice time
