Let's Build Next Years Team - Fourth Line Left Wing
Im sorta ripping off flylines yearly prospect post, and kinda building a twist around it. Were going to vote on the lines for next year. Im going to go position by position, and were going to have a vote for every single player, even the more obvious choices till we fill out an entire roster.
The assumptions here are the team carrying 2 goalies, 1 backup defenseman, and 2 backup forwards. The first few obvious prospects will also be listed in every vote, along with an "other" option. This is if you feel another player not listed is a better choice than any of the other players.
The Roster As It Stands Now:
Markus Naslund (52.83%) - Scotty Gomez (91.67%) - Nikolai Zherdev (78.02%)
Nigel Dawes (72.50%) - Chris Drury (54.48%) - Petr Prucha (40.91%) Dan Fritsche (45.21%) - Brandon Dubinsky (93.15%) - Ryan Callahan (63.08%) Fourth Line Left Wing - Blair Betts (94.92%) - Fourth Line Right Wing
First Backup Forward
Second Backup Forward
First Pairing Left Defenseman - First Pairing Right Defenseman
Second Pairing Left Defenseman - Second Pairing Right Defenseman
Third Pairing Left Defenseman - Third Pairing Right Defenseman
Think we'll probably start the season with Sjostrom-Betts-Rissmiller, they both can play both wings, so whoever is more comfortable with each.
Yeah but here is where the problem comes in. What about Voros? What if Anisimov blows Renney and Co. away during training camp? Korpedo looked great in that game against Pitt last year I dont understand why he couldn't make the team. Not to mention Colton Orr. We have six players contending for 2 spots.
Double yoo tee eff mate.
