-Move Ennis to wing. Need room for centers to develop.
-Grigo gets another serous try with real teammates not named John Scott. Ott still takes some draws. Try the Ott-Grig-Leino line which was working in camp before Leino got hurt in camp last season.
-Flynn & Tropp stay up in Buffalo. Porter has a shot to stay but needs to play hard to make it happen.
-Miller probably traded before deadline for cheap (a prospect, low 2nd round pick, or a mid-career unknown vet to fill a gap on 4th line or something).
-Vanek: Who knows what will happen at the trade deadline...
-Enroth gets more games this year. Need to be confident he's a #1 when Miller's not around.
-Luke Adam gets a 20 solid game tryout (with some time on 3rd line) to prove he's an NHL center or not. Hopefully, because Girgensons needs more time.
-Potential trade: Kaleta for bag of pucks and a case of Blue to a team that needs to get 'tougher' like when Buffalo signed Ott.
-Potential buyout: Stafford. If not, demoted to 3rd or 4th line.
-Ott (A), Hodgson (A), Vanek (C) -- Vanek as Captain creates an uproar among fans (OMGz why not OTT!?!) Who knows, maybe Weber with an A over Hodgson.
Adam over Larsson? Adam had his cup of tea in the NHL and he sucked. Then he went to Rochester, where he sucked. If he has a future in the NHL, it's on the wing. And it's not with Buffalo.
Flynn at center? He played center at Maine but I'm almost positive he's never skated as a pivot professionally.
The Kaleta/Stafford comments are just silly. As is Vanek for captain.
