It's been a long night. Firstly, i appologise for by accident posting far from complete line-ups earlier. Now it's just about finished and it's been quite the partial overhaul here partly becouse of the team we're up against, partly becouse we probably should have done some of these changes for the regular season allready. I've also added bios to some of the more perhaps obsqure, but oh still important players. Also updated some others, but when it comes to still active players and a certain HoF snub last summer i've just linked to Hockey-Reference for now, very good to see not the least Power-Play scoring.


Coach: Jacques Demers
Captain: Bob Gainey
Ass. captains:
Viacheslav Fetisov
Guy Carbonneau

Please obeserve that my third line will play the most, and the fourth very sparingly 5-on-5. Complete chart down below.

Brendan Shanahan-Max Bentley-Dany Heatley
Daniel Sedin-Vladimir Petrov-Claude Lemieux
Bob Gainey-Guy Carbonneau-BÅ Gustafsson/Lemieux(See chart below)
Marcel Bonin-Simon Gagne-Bobby Schmautz
Gagne played some center early in his career, will do it here for two shifts per period.

Second and third pairing players will play roughly equally much, in total with special team duty. This to maximize the first ones performance. Again, please see the chart below.

Viacheslav Fetisov-Ulf Samuelsson
Gary Suter-Ken Morrow(RHS)
Alexei Gusarov-James Patrick(RHS)

Glenn Hall
Vladimir Dzurilla

Reserves: Tiger Williams(LW), Andy Hebenton(RW/C)
Paul Reinhart, Jeff Brown(RHS)

All players with PP-stats available there has been linked to Hockey-Reference for easy access to PP-fruitivity.

1st unit will play a 1-3-1 power-play with Shanahan on the goalie and prime Heatley as mainly a central sniper, the other ones doing passing lanes between them, and taking shots, and in especially Bentleys case obviously taking one-on-one action:

This unit will play a simple power-play on the outside with Lemieux on the goalie:

I'll have a further look on my opponents team when i've slept, having trouble digesting aforemost all the old dudes on his first line.
