Beck
Forsberg
Jarnkrok
Spaling RFA
Beck RFA

I look at this guys and I ask who starts on the Preds next yr? For the first time in like, ever, the Preds will have multiple young prospects for the top 6 and should lead to multiple trades of forwards. I ask about Gaustad because of the new faceoff rules does his faceoff ability fall off? If it was me....

Nystrom-Wilson-Smith
Forsberg-Jarnkrok-Hornqvist
Bourque-Fisher-Cullen
Stalberg-Gaustad-Beck
Clune-Spaling

Watson in Milwaukee, Sissons in Milwaukee (First call up),
I know most would say Trotz would never pair FF and Iron Hook but the skill sets of FF, Iron Hook, and Hornqvist would make a wonderful line combination.

Also this point, if the Preds go in house for a backup Goalie and decide to keep Beck in Milwaukee and or trade him, that will leave about 8-12 million for 1 forward spot.
I am convinced you can add Moser with another 1 y 2ways contract in it.
He's cheaper than any of the expensive 4th line (the 8.5 mio line !) and at least as good as them ... and will only get better.
