If everyone is healthy (and not traded), the projected line-up would be something like:

Timonen-L. Schenn
Meszaros-Coburn
Grosmann-Gustafsson
Gervais

Gustafsson would have to clear waivers to go to the AHL. Given his performance down the stretch, and the fact that he's slated to play big minutes over at the World Championships, I think it is unlikely he goes unclaimed.

Obviously, all of this changes if someone gets traded, but the Flyers personnel issues are a bit exaggerated around here. The problem is less the line-up on paper then it is the mismatch between some of the players' skillsets and Laviolette's system.
Meszaros better not be here next season. He makes too much and his injuries have outweighed his production/reliability. I'm hoping Nurse falls to us at 11 or we trade up and grab him.

Timonen-Schenn
Nurse-Coburn
Grossmann-Gustafsson
