I think the Leafs who will be on the Cup winning team that could be on the roster this season are:
I think a 2nd line of Tlusty-Bozak-Stalberg could be a great line in a couple of seasons, and would be a very good support to a top line of Kessel-Kadri-Kulemin. Both lines could have tremendous chemistry IMO, based on the way the players play the game. I'm not saying I think Kulemin would be the best player out of him and the 2nd line, but the chemistry would be different based on his play vs. Tlusty or Stalberg.
I included the obvious in Schenn, and then Beauch and Komisarek should still be on their first contracts when we're ready to contend (
). Kaberle is still someone who would be able to lead the PP IMO, and I think that his chance to get a big payday of over 5.5 will be gone when he hits UFA, so he wouldn't be impossible to re-sign.
Yeah, not a hard decision to say the Monster will be our #1 in a couple seasons time, so I think he'll be here for the long haul.
Kulemin -- Kadri -- Kessel
Tlusty -- Bozak -- Stalberg
______ -- J. Mitchell -- ______
______ -- ______ -- Orr
Possibles: Stefanovich (move Kulemin to 3rd line), D. Mitchell, Hanson, Hayes, Ryan, Didomenico
Kaberle -- Komisarek
Beauchemin -- Schenn
______ -- ______
Possibles: Blacker, Oreskovic, Gunnarsson
So yeah, personally, of our prospects, I think the extra forwards would include Hanson, D. Mitchell, and Kenny Ryan with Hanson centering the 4th line. On D, I think the 3rd pairing could probably be Blacker-Oreskovic, and I do think that Reimer will be the back-up in a few seasons.
