The problem with some of you people is that you think that EVERY player on the team should be good. Theres a reason players play 3rd line, 4th line and second pairing. "if we had better goaltending, better defense..." who? Who can we get that will fit under the cap as a goalie thats going to change this team and who is going to make this team so much better from the back end without giving away half our forwards.

With a few screwed moves we could be icing this roster (mix and match the top 3 lines however you want)

Gagne Richards Knuble
Upshall Carter Giroux
Hartnell Briere Nodl
Cote Powe Asham
Kalinski, Ross

Coburn Timonen
Jbo Parent
Kukkonen Vaananen
Well first of all thats assuming we could get jbo for lupul and jones(im assuming you throw in a 1st). Lupul is an underachiever with a raise next year and Jones is a guy you all want us to waive, so how would that land us a blue chip dman? Even if it did that 3rd pairing would be complete TRASH. your best possible scenario has a 3rd pairing of ossi and kukk. Everyone's argument is that ossi played 1st pairing, wow, its really hard to play with fing timonen. When he wasnt with kimmo he looked terrible. In your dream world our 3rd pairing is Ossi who was a constant healthy scratch and kukk who was waived multiple times without ANYONE picking him up even for a price cut! The guy is terrible. Kukk belongs nowhere near an NHL roster and that was proven when nobody picked him up twice! Bu thats what you want as your 3rd pairing?

And in your dream team upshall plays 2nd line? Upshall has all heart, no hope. He runs around like crazy but does he score? Any team with upshall on their second line will not succeed, hes not a scoring forward. your dream team lineup is no better than the one we're putting out on the ice every night.
