Hey guys, new to this board, going to lay out what I think the lineup should look like. Next season is huge for Erie, if it is successful, fans will turn out and there will be no reason for this team to move with the new arena (which I am very excited to see). I am also excited for the two new assistants knoblauch got to pick, hopefully it works out well. Lines:
Crisp-McDavid-Brown,
Strome-Fox-Hodgson
Petit-Cairns-Lattavo
Betz-Evans-Wigle
Pelech-Import
McDowell-Trade
Raddysh-Abraham/Donnay/Saban/Felker/Dermott/Murphy
Dansk-Williams, likely Dekoning as the third goalie

I think Harper should be traded, along with one of our young D-men (Felker,Dermott,Murphy) and a pick for a legit top 4 dman, and we should use our import pick on a dmen as well. This gives us a solid top 4, and Raddysh plus options for the final pair. The connor line gives us a power forward,playmaker, sniper combo. 2nd line can chip in secondary scoring with some grit, and the bottom two lines are pure grittiness. I have no doubt our goaltending will be there with the improved defense and backchecking. Abraham can stay on as an OA to mentor the young D and be a depth guy. He is not much more than a 3rd line dman but he seems to have a lot of character. I am done with Donnay. He doesnt use his size and makes terrible decisions with the puck. He can be dumped as well. Saban would be my favorite to take that final spot, but again we have a ton of youth options and we should make use of them in a trade. Felker, Dermott, Murphy, Saban, and Mayo are all young guys who can be traded for a useful top 4 dman along with Harper, like I stated above. And does anyone know what happened to Riley Robertson?
