First, the roster without any Crunch players:

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

Hedman // Carle
Brewer // Salo
Mikkelson // Lee
MAB

Lindback
Garon

Not terrible, but secondary scoring would be an issue.


Now, the roster without any regards to keeping the Crunch competitive (SYR players in bold):

Malone // Stamkos // St. Louis
Connolly // Lecavalier // Purcell
Pouliot // Johnson // Killorn
Pyatt // Thompson // Crombeen
Tyrell, Hall, Wilson

Hedman // Carle
Brewer // Salo
Aulie // Lee
Mikkelson, MAB

Lindback
Garon


I'm gonna guess that the opening night roster will be somewhere in between those two. Maybe Conacher instead of Connolly, and only one of Johnson or Killorn get called up. Aulie only gets called up if he is going to be playing as one of our top 6 dmen.

So maybe:

Malone // Stamkos // St. Louis
Conacher // Lecavalier // Purcell
Pouliot // Killorn // Tyrell
Pyatt // Thompson // Crombeen
Hall, Wilson

Hedman // Carle
Brewer // Salo
Aulie // Lee
Mikkelson, MAB

Lindback
Garon

Thoughts:
- I like Malone on a line with Marty/Stammer
- If we are going to have a young scoring line forward, they should probably play on Vinny's line
- 3rd line center is a big question mark. Is Killorn or Johnson ready for it?
- How is Lindback's injury? (Didn't he have stitches in his leg or something?)
- OMG, NHL hockey!
