Ok, here we go. Some big summer trades that ofcourse goes down as planned
Top line / Scoring line
Hossa - Rickhards - Hossa
2nd line / Supportive scoring line
Prucha - Straka - Shanny
3rd line / The 2-way line
Avery - Cullen - Lundqvist
4th line / Checking line
Hollweg - Betts - Ortmeyer
Reserves who playes when there are spots to fill
Dawes, Jessiman, Orr and Callahan. It is a long season and they will all play a part.
Hannan - Mara
Tyutin - Ballard
Malik - Staal
Trades and lines:
Hossa for Jagr and Nylander. The Hossa brothers are united and along with star center Brad Rickhards they form one of the best line in the whole NHL. Cost a lot of money but they will be worth it. Atlanta lost a key player but with Jagr and Nylander playing with Kovalchuk they have a very creative and deadly first line. Since Tampa quickly made a deal with Gomez to be their front face down in Florida we managed to get Rickhards for "only" Montoya and the first NYR pick-09. They wanted to build a hispanic front face to get some attention down south. With Montoya in the team they did not resign Holmqvist who after a fairly good season signed with his former NHL team, the New York Rangers.
No new signings for the second line. To keep, now 39 year old, Shanny fresh when the post season begins his spot will be shared with the reserves so they get some healthy experince for the next season when he is gone.
The 3rd line sees one new face...or? The face of goalie Henrik will be seen on the 3rd line since his twin brother is traded from Dallas to form a very strong line who can defend, create, agitate and put the puck in the net.
For 4th line H-B-O will continue their hard work in getting the other teams star players to look twice over the shoulder every time they step out on the ice. Not much to say about them since their job is to play 0-0 with the other team.
At D their will be som key changes with Hannan coming in as a free agent. After an ok season he have gotten more used to the new NHL┤s way of defending and along with reborn Mara who will be supporting defender in the attacks they form a strong, competetive first pair.
With an unhappy Ballard in Arizona we send P÷ck and Rozi down south and they ship Keith back to us. With Tyutin he form one of the leagues hardest hitting units who can both defend and attack when needed.
Malik will use his final years contracted to the organization to teach upcoming star Staal all there is to know about the NHL.
As a 7th D-man Baranka is brought up to the big club after 2 solid season in the AHL.
Well that┤s it. Team will be pretty close to the cap limit but if your on Broadway you better be prepared to spend.
