If the NHL gets tired of being on vacation and decides to save the season, it will happen in the next week or two. Now that we've gotten a decent look at the Syracuse guys, how would you put the Lightning team together if the season were to start on Dec. 15.

If we stick strictly to one way contracts to start, the Bolts will look like this:

Purcell-Stamkos-St. Louis
Malone-Lecavalier-Tyrell
Pouliot-Thompson-Hall
Pyatt-Wilson-Crombeen

Hedman-Salo
Carle-Brewer
Bergeron-Lee
Mikkelson

Lindback
Garon

If there is some flex available in the budget, I think Johnson will get the 3C spot and one of Conacher, Brown, Panik, Palat or Connolly will get a 2W spot. Eventually most of those wingers will take over the Lightning's wing positions, but how much happens this season and how much in the future we don't know. I think Taormina and Korobov could easily handle the #5-6D spots if the one way contract guys struggle. Maybe Barberio also, but he still seems to struggle defensively now and then.

Those are just my thoughts, the team could be put together a dozen different ways really. Hopefully, everyone comes to their senses and starts playing again.
