Ovechkin- Backstrom - Knuble
Laich- MaJo- Semin
Brouwer- x - Ward
Chimera- Halpern- Hendricks
Beagle-King

Eakin or Sjogren could make the team and play that C role....or Laich could be there and then we need a cheap vet 2W (Stillman or Samsanov are who I'd like)

Ovechkin- Backstrom- Knuble
Stillman- Majo- Semin
Brower-Laich-Ward
Chimera-Halpern-Hendricks
Sjogren-Beagle
Based on how McPhee talked about the Brouwer trade, I'm betting the organization views him as a Top 6 winger. Whether Boudreau puts him in that role is another question, but McPhee isn't about to go out and spend his last pennies to sign another winger unless someone gets hurt or really sucks. I think he's holding on to those few pennies as his "rainy day fund" for any problems that arise with the team so he can add one more player via small trade or waivers if the need arises.
