Bozak(depth at centre, could benefit from a year in the AHL, hoping he's NHL ready though)

Hanson(signed to be a future top 6 powerforward type, likely to get a good amount of games)

Gustavsson(very legit shot, expected)

Stalberg(solid player, I'm expecting him to steal a spot)

Why don't you wait until 2010 comes out? That's a lot of work to do for a few weeks...

For the Stars: Vishnevskiy will likely start in the AHL, but will definitely see action, and likely be a regular by mid-season. Benn will get a cup of coffee at some point, and if he really impresses could stick. Ray Sawada will likely make the team out of camp. And according to HF Brunnstrom is still a prospect, but he was already on the team (on 09) with the updates I think.

My suggestion is to create the players as they sign.

I would say that JvR, Pat Maroon and Kevin Marshall all have a legit shot at working themselves into the Flyers starting line up this season.

Would also be great to see Wishart get a nice stay with the team, but thats more of a long shot.. I can see him getting a call up for 5-10 games this year..

Other than that, I really have no idea cause I havent followed the team too much this offseason
Hedman is already in the game. Go look at Modo. I don't think his attributes really need to be tweaked either.

Edit: I checked, and Mihalik and Wishart should be on Norfolk.

Tyrell needs to be created though.

For Detroit there will be a few:

Ville Leino: He saw time last season so this wont be much of a shock. He probably will get top 6 minutes as long as he has a strong camp. Detroit likes to spread out the talent so he could play with anyone from Datsyuk to Zetterberg to who knows.

Darren Helm: For sure making it this year. IMHO he's got a lot more potential as a grinder with scoring ability then Draper ever had and I think he personally is faster then Draper was in his prime. He could be a suprising 15 goal player this year with everyone leaving.

Johnathan Ericsson: I dont even need to comment on how high Detroit is on this kid. Who knows how high his potential is but its truely amazing.

Jimmy Howard: One of my favorite prospects. Holland said he should get between 25-30 starts, maybe more if Ozzie has another horrid regular season.

Outsiders:

Justin Abdelkader: Call up most likely. Its smtarter to leave him in the AHL and play first line everything in every situation and grow from that. No need to rush him this year.

Jukab Kindl: Im fully assuming that if a top four defenseman goes down, we would give this kid a call up instead of throwing the spot to Meech (who hopefully is out this year). Could see 5-10 games.

I dont really see anyone else making it or being called up unless we are really struck with injuries this year.

besides Backlund there is also Pelech who could see some time.. (probably as an injury replacement).

Those are players you should have with the Ducks. I took for granted that you are having Carter, Miller, Festerling and Mikkelson in there. If you are going with 3 goalies on all teams, it's Justin Pogge who is the third guy between the pipes if the rumours are true, elseways it's Jean-Phillippe Levasseur.

What's the deal with Dick Axelsson? Just not ready enough to make an impact?

He just gets forgotten time to time. He'll be at training camp and will probably make an impact and could get the call-up.
