Meh, I think Semin might take a paycut to stay with Ov. Laich, I am worried about though. I just hope if he does leave, someoen is ready to replace him, which by all accounts, Osala and co could be ready by then
AnGus could be a perfect replacement for him if Perrault turns into a good 2nd liner.
With FAs counted, hopefully there would be an addition at center. The D is a bit tough to predict, with Gorges, Valentenko, Fischer, Weber, Carle, O'byrne and Subban all battling for spots. Oh, and possibly Emelin too, cripes.
Outstanding goaltending, great and deep D, excellent depth and quality on the wings. Good checking centers, but lacking in scoring centers. Hopefully a UFA or the 1st rounder in 09 could fix that up.
Drayson Bowman - Eric Staal - Tuomo Ruutu
Patrick Eaves - Zach Boychuk - Justin Williams
Nick Dodge - Brandon Sutter - Harrison Reed
Nicolas Blanchard - Stefan Chaput - Chad LaRose
Ryan Weston, Chris Terry.
Joni Pitkanen - Tim Gleason
Jamie McBain - Anton Babchuk
Casey Borer - Kyle Lawson
Brett Carson, Michal Jordan
obviously draft picks and the like could change this up a good bit, but this is just working with what they have in the system right now.
