Ok fine, the point wasn't to guess the opening day lines to a man and the winner gets a free ice cream cone.
It was more an exercise in looking at where we stand before any roster moves. This way, we can see realistically and hopefully somewhat objectively what we need/should/can do through the summer.
This is what a real management team would do, not plug trades with Colorado into NHL13 and see if the computer accepts them.
I'll go first: Projecting Armia and Grigs into second line spots should speak to my point. On the forward end, that is our weakest point. I don't like those three out there together being picked on by the Lucics, Dustin Browns and Bryan Bickells of the world.
So what can we do about it? Are Clarkson or Clowe available at a reasonable price? I highly, highly doubt Horton leaves Boston for Buffalo. How about Sean Couturier as the center here?
