Wouldn't this be kinda awesome for 2013-2014?

Tatar - Jarnkrok - Jurco
Tvrdon - Sheahan - Ferraro
Callahan - Aubry - Parkes
Nestrasil - Quine - Pulkkinen

Billins - Nicastro
Ouellet - Sproul
Almqvist - Marchenko

It's definitely not realistic though:

1. When it comes to Jarnkrok and the stereotype that Europeans don't want to play in the AHL partially because they can make a lot more money at home, I feel like Jarnkrok is one of those guys and honestly, I wouldn't blame him. He can still prove me to be very wrong though and I'd be more than happy to be wrong in this case.

2. I can't believe Tatar has one more year of waiver-exemption after this season. It seems like he's been there forever and I'm sure he feels double that. He says he has offers from the KHL and I believe him. It's time for him to move on after this year.

3. With this organization you always have to wary of the possibility that they'll inject close to the 5/6 veteran limit. And even though you can argue all day about the development of the youth, it's sometimes tough to argue against the use of the maximum amount of veterans because the AHL is definitely a grown man's league.

Something perhaps more realistic:

VETERAN / Nestrasil - Ferraro - Jurco
Tvrdon - Sheahan - Pulkkinen
VETERAN / Nestrasil - Aubry - Parkes
Quine - Coetzee

Almqvist - Marchenko
Ouellet - Sproul
VETERAN - Nicastro
