The offseason will be interesting.
I think this is about how it ends up.

Drouin, Connolly, and Kucherov have to wait a year. Palat, Johnson, and Panik are enough rookies to have at one time.

Hedman- Gudas
Carle- Salo
Korobov- Taormina
Aulie

Average, but Cooper will have the forwards helping these guys out, which will make them look much better. Malone and/or Brewer get traded for a D if the Bolts don't like Korobov or Taormina, or for draft picks otherwise.

Bishop
Lindback

I like these two. At least one of them will be playing well at any given time. Overall, decent playoff team, that is if Gudas, Salo, and Carle have good years, and if the forwards help out on D.


AHL lineup.

Gauthier- Namestnikov- Connolly
Devos- Angelidis- Kucherov
Tyrell- Paquette- Wyman
Paradis- Richard- Sexton
Jacques

Not as good as this year. Connolly and Kucherov will have to carry them.

Barberio- Sustr
Nesterov- Sergeev
Witkowski- Lee

Any lineup with Lee in it has got to be good...

Janus
Vasilevskiy

Tending will be the strong point of the team. Overall, the AHL team will likely fall to just average next season. My 2 cents.
Palat on the top line? Gudas on the top pairing? Korobov, Taormina on our third pairing? Buhhhhhhh. Also, no Connolly?
