Try to acquire defenseman at deadline for near nothing against cap...vis a vis...Weinrich, Morris, Richardson, et al.
From bottom to top...

1) Sim isn't a center
2) Carter and Richards are both centers (so is Umberger for that matter).
2a) There is no way in hell that Hitchcock will put out a line of 3 rookies on a regular basis.
3) I highly doubt that Brashear will be waived. For whatever reason, Hitch loves the guy.

BTW, is there a reason why you didn't include Kim Johnsson in your defensive pairings?

Lines I would like to see

Gagne-Forsberg-Nedved (just to see how he would perform on the top line)

on the PP


Kapanen-input defenseman here is offline
