Call up:Nimisz


Pairings:

Sarich(R)-Bouwmeester(L)
Gilroy(R)-Seindenburg (L)
Schubert(L)-Erskine(L)
Giordano(L)
Woywitka (L)


Call up: Aulie

Kiprusoff
McLelland

In: Holmstrom, Tikhonov, Zherdev, Dubinsky, Gilroy, Woywitka, Sidenburg, Schubert, Erskine, Giroux

Out: Moss, Phaneuf, Bourque, Boyd, Prust, Sjostrum, Rheger, Exelby, Pardy, Conroy, McGrattan, Kronwall, Jokinen, Johnson


Key additions:

Roy, Holmstom, Sturm, Zherdev, Dubinsky. These players complete a legitimate top6.



Our forward corps is suddenly very dangerous, balanced and gritty. Holstrom will upset many goaltenders and knock in the garbage from Zherdev, and Dubinsky will grind and give Zherdev the space he requires to score. Iginla is still a 40-50 goal man paired well with a playmaking Centre in Roy who averages 0.75-1 PPG and Sturm who produces 20-30 goals everywhere he goes.

Our bottom 6 has a very good energy line with Tikhonov (a future top 6 winger), Backlund (a future #1C) and Giroux (who scored 75 G in his last season in the AHL and averages 0.33 PPG in the NHL). Our 4th line boasts size, grit and 45 goals a year.


Our defence still boasts Boumeester as our all-star, but he is well supported. Gilroy will round out into a top 4 Dman this season. Our D also has a good mix of speed, passing, size and grit.

Our goaltending is in the hands of perennial a Vezina candidate in Kiprusoff and McLelland is capable of playing 15-20 games per season and be at .500 in those games.

Our prospect pool includes Nimisz up front, Aulie and Elliot on D and Lleland in goal.

We also hold all our own picks in the 2011 draft as well Colorado's 1st in 2011.




Our cap space is 715K
