But I'm not sure the team has the players to do it. Which top 6 guys are ready for some more responsibility? Which need the softest minutes? (kind of a redundant question)
My predicted line-up:
Hall - RNH - Eberle (thown more to the wolves this year)
Hartikainen - Gagner - Yakupov (sheltered)
Smyth - Horcoff - Hemsky (tough minutes)
Petrell - Belanger - Jones (responsible enough for some tough minutes)
Softest forward lineup in the league?
You forgot Eager and Hordichuk. Krueger has said that he'll give those guys a longer leash to run around and stir up some ****.
