Torres
Chimera

If we get frolov (which I wouldn't mind at all) I'd like to see:

Smyth-Oates-Hemsky
Torres-York-Dvorak
Moreau-Reasoner-Isbister
Frolov-Stoll-Salmolainen

That doesn't look like a bunch of ice time, but MacT rolls his lines, and even strength the fourth line (if playing good, like all lines must with MacT) will get as much ice time as anybody. And while Reasoner is out, you could put Smyth in between Moreau and Isbister and Frolov on the top line and Chimera as fourth line LW. But then that also takes Pisani out of the lineup..... I don't want to see that (I know, have I changed my opinion). I dunno. Beats me. I think we'd have to give up another forward with Comrie and they could include a pick. Say:
Comrie, Horcoff, third
for
Frolov, second

But that stil doesn't help my lines as Horcoff wasn't even listed in the lines! Jesh... I dunno.... he'd create a HUGE log jam, but a welcome one IMO.
Not only does it create a major log jam now, but it creates an absolute nightmare later; two of our top prospects are LWs (Rita, Mikhnov). To top it off, Smyth really doesn't belong at C; I still think we need to make a Comrie+LW (Chimera or Rita or whatever) for a C and a D-man. This makes LA a bad trading partner (since they are already short on Cs).
