Brad Staubitz - Eric Nystrom - Matt Kassian
Greg Zanon - Marek Zidlicky
Nick Schultz - Mike Lundin
Clayton Stoner - Jared Spurgeon
So again, there's still really not alot about this team that makes me go "wow! I can't wait to watch the Wild play." Sure they have Heatley, and Backstrom is a world-class goalie. But it's still a team that has to win by their system, and I still feel like there's going to be "trapping" going on.
Eeek, is that what the rest of the league thinks the lineup looks like?
Here's a look at a realistic depth chart:
Bouchard - Koivu - Heatley
Latendresse - Cullen - Setoguchi
Gillies - Brodziak - Clutterbuck
Powe - Almond - Nystrom
Schultz - Zidlicky
Zanon - Lundin
Stoner - Spurgeon
Bouchard/Setoguchi could swap, as could Cullen/Brodziak and Gillies/Powe. Scandella might contend for one of the D spots, but I personally think he stays in Houston until the trade deadline when we'll probably move a defenseman (Zanon).
