i would not do w2 on the first line.
3 reasons. first, dubi is not a centerman. period.
second, theres no one to go get pucks out of the corners for richards and gaby. i do not, and i repeat, do not want another year like last year where gaborik was trying to be playmaker and puck retriever. cant have it. richards will be the distributor. gaby the finisher. we need a guy like dubinski to do the dirty work, forecheck, finish checks and dig pucks out. hes the chase in dump and chase. without a guy like that on that line, theres not enough bone to go with the fillet.
third, wolski isnt a feature guy. hes a skilled guy but not really a top line guy. let him show off his skills and speed against 2nd pair dmen. his offensive ability gives us another weapon and makes that 2nd line that much more dangerous. i still think wolski has 25 goals in him especially playing with stepan and callahan.
dubi richards gaby- good blanced first line
w2 stepan cally-skill and grit
hagelin arty ftank- the ''eruo '' line. speed and smart defensive play
boyle lindberg prust- size and toughness
that might work
i like 2 rookies in the bottom 6. both rooks are smart defensive players.
i like the top 6. no rookies. all guys who can play alot of minutes and some nice balance of skill, scoring, grit and speed. both centers are playmakers while each line has a guy who can dig and score on the wings.
we are lacking that big power winger however. that might be a problem.
