Doubtful that they spend any money on a guy like Cullen. IMO, I think there is a pretty good chance Reinhart makes it considering how physically advanced he is, and how dominant he's been defensively this year. I would guess he'll get at least a 9-game tryout.

My guess would be something like this:

Moulson - Tavares - Niederreiter
Bailey - Strome - Okposo
Ullstrom - Nielsen - Grabner
Martin - Cizikas - Nokelainen(UFA)

deHaan/UFA - Hamonic
Streit - Reinhart
MacDonald - Carkner



Joensuu - Nelson - McDonald
Persson - Sundstrom - Kabanov
Halmo - Lee - Rakhshani(if still here)
DeFazio - Clark - UFA

Donovan - Mayfield
Ness - Cantin
Pedan - Kichton

No way Joensuu suits up for this organziation in nothing other than an Isles sweater. Also, Brock Nelson's developmental curve has been unreal and he is a big boy; don't count him out. Rahkshani (see Joensuu). Other than that seems pretty solid, however I would think that Donovan would be higher on the depth chart than de Haan. I can't see him being in the teams plans over Matty D.
