I'd like to see something like:

Gagne-Forsberg-Knuble
Nedved-Carter-Radio
Handzus-Richards-Kapanen
Stevenson-Umberger-Brash
Extra:Savage

Pitkanen/Desjardins
Hatcher/Meyer
Rathje/Therien

Niittymaki
Esche

I think you'll see the Flyers add someone for the top 2 lines, maybe Jokinen, Tkachuk, or even Doan (who I've heard they are seriously persuing). I also think you'll add a depth d-man.

This is what i'm hoping our lineup looks like heading into the playoffs:

Gagne-Carter-Forsberg
Nedved-Jokinen-Knuble
Kapanen-Handzus-Radio
Stevenson-Richards-Savage/Brash
Extra:Savage/Brash, Eager

Pitkanen/Rathje
Johnsson/Hatcher
Desjardins/Willie Mitchell/Kuba
Extra:Meyer, Jones, Therien

Niitty
Esche

With Umberger getting dealt in a deal for Jokinen and pretty much picks in a deal for that #6 d-man
Not counting any trades, my thoughts are:
Gagne Forsberg Knuble
Nedved Handzus Rado/Kapanen
Umberger Carter Rado/Kapanen
Brashear Richards Savage
Stevenson Eager

Pitkanen Desjardins
Hatcher Johnsson
Meyer Rathje
Picard Jones

Can we get Doan without giving up Umberger? I would love to see a line of
Umberger Carter Doan for the next 5 years.
