datsyuk-zberg-holmstrom
hudler-filpula-franzen
cleary-modano-bertuzzi
abs-draper-helm

eaves-miller-ritola


we would be fine if we could just roll 5 lines. haha

subtract modano from the line-up and you still have 2 extra forwards. i guess we can assume if modano is signed we wave goodbye to at least 1/3 between eaves miller ritola... even if it SHOULD be draper, it wont be.

maybe holland has something up his sleeve and he knows if he signs modano he can trade for a D using meech+one of those 3 forwards but i just dont want to see eaves/miller/ritola go so we can sign modano for a year.
He would be playing on the third line with cleary and hudler to start the season. Draper would most likely be the 13th forward while Abdelkadar centers the 4th line with Helm and Eaves....

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filpula-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Modano-Hudler
Helm-Abdelkader-Eaves
Ritola-Draper-Miller(likely traded with Meech)

he fits into the lineup pretty good imo.
