For now one forward line is set:

Patches...DD...Cole

I'd like to trade Gionta but something tells me we're not going to get much for him so if we keep him I would team him with Eller & Moen. Use the same template as with the DD line. One surf with two bigger players. So our third line

Moen.....Eller.....Gionta

Our second line would only have Pleks on it right now. We need to find two wingers for him outside the organization.


*****.....Pleks......******


Our 4th line right now has only White on it and an occasional Stabitz.

******....White.....*******

Stabitz

The rest of the forwards:

Darche is our 13/14th forward
Palushaj & Geoffrion do not make a contending team
Leblanc is not ready.
Gomez should be removed from the line up
Blunden........meh.
Bourque....double meh


So that means we need 4 wingers. Two for pleks and two for White (or a centerman and a winger for that 4th line.)

Our d is not in bad shape if it says healthy.

Markov......Emelin
Gorges.....Subban
Diaz......******

St Denis.

Trade Kaberle & Weber.

In the off season I would make a hard serious push for Suter & Parise. If successful that leaves us with a respectable defense and 3 holes in our forward lines.

Patches DD Cole
Parise Pleks ****
Moen Eller Gionta
***** ***** White
Stabitz

Markov Suter
Gorges Subban
Diaz Emelin
St Denis

If we can't get Suter I would push for a hard nosed stay at home d-man like Allen.

So we have to find a 2nd line winger and a couple of gritty 4th liners. And Parenteau is not the answer.
