Two Questions: Tyler Arnason and Next Seasons Roster

First off, most boards have a thread dedicated to speculation of the line combinations and who will make the roster next season etc, so I thought I'd start one here. How do you (realistically) see the Blackhawks roster next year?

Second, what do you all think the upside of Tyler Arnason is? I've never seen him play, but he put up pretty impressive numbers this year.. Do you think he'll ever hit 30 goals? Perhaps even 80 points?

Thanks!

Tyler Arnason --
I think he could hit 30 goals, but not on a regular basis. To me, he's a 2nd line center (or winger) who will have 25-30 goals and 50-65 points most seasons. Maybe once or twice he tops 70, but he so far hasn't shown that he can be a point-per-game 1st line center.


2004-05 roster --
Unlikely Steve Passmore, Deron Quint, and Igor Korolev will be back. Burke Henry and Travis Moen are AHL-calibre. Igor Radulov could be a 20-goal scorer in the NHL next season ... or a 15-goal scorer in the AHL.

Forwards Tuomo Ruutu, Éric Dazé, and Arnason formed a pretty good line they last month of the season. Mark Bell and Kyle Calder should be on the 2nd line, with Mikhail Yakubov possibly being their center. Yak's situation could vary greatly; he could be the team's 2nd line center ... or in the AHL again.

Daze | Arnason | Ruutu
Calder | Yakubov | Bell
Radulov | McLean | Vorobiev/Keith/Ellison
Strudwick | Nichol | VandenBussche

Defense ... Steve McCarthy will be re-signed, bryan Berard better be re-signed, and Stéphane Robidas is good enough to be the Hawks' 6th or 7th defenseman.

Berard | Vandermeer
McCarthy | Babchuk
Kukkonen | [average UFA]
ex - Robidas

with Barinka as the first call-up.

Tyler Arnason - He'l always be the kind of player to hang around the 25 goal mark, which isnt bad by any means. He still suggles with consistancy, and is pretty bad in the faceoff department. If Arnason wants to stay here (and who would?), he'll have to improve his faceoffs, because Sutter plays him as a center

Daze Arnason Ruutu
Calder Yakubov Bell
Radulov McLean Keith
Strudwick/UFA Nichol VandenBussche

Berard Vandermeer
McCarthy Babchuk
Kukkonen Robidas

Thibault
Norfolk Express

Out of curiosity, why don't you see Vorobiev in the line-up?

Vorobiev had a pretty bad year last year in the AHL. Granted it was his first in north america, but he is a slightly older prospect. He was touted as a decent skill physical grinder, but he played really soft and was pushed around. He was even a healthy scratch for Norfolk during the playoffs. The guy has skill, but he didn't show he wanted to play last year. He needs to come back really strong this year and hope for a mid to late season callup.

Daze Arnason Ruutu
Calder __1__ Ellison
Bell Yakubov Vorobiev
Laing Nichol Thornton

Berard ___2___
McCarthy Vandermeer

1. - They need to pick up a 1-2 line center.
2. - Grab the best Defensman you can.

People that will not be back - McLean, Poapst, Nickulas, Quint, Vandenbusche.

Here is the Admirals roster.

I see Tyler Arnason on another team. He won't play for Sutter.

You really see Mike Brodeur on the farm next year!? That would be sweet if he did. He played his Jr. A days with my hometown Kodiaks. Good Luck Mike!!!

Vorobiev's issue was twofold. 1st year in N.A. & still recovering from a knee surgery that Russian doctors screwed up & US doctors had a hard time fixing. Next year will be key for his future.

The Hawks should get a UFA d-man like Brad Bombardir to fill out their D corps. As for UFA forwards, they'll probably find some mediocre grinder that Sutter will play 18 minutes a night...

Don't the Hawks have to make a decision as to Leighton vs. Anderson? Maybe not yet, I guess.
