We need to trim the roster of six players, coach...


(Note: the polling mechanism limited me to fifteen choices or I probably would have widened it a bit more.)

I'd say Toivenen to give him a year to adjust, Shields because there is no place for him, Kutlak, Jurcina, Brennan I think the D we have are pretty good, and finally Ted Donato because I think we should give some of the younger players a shot and I think he should be up with the B's for a good veteran to come up if there are injuries

Those are the exact players I voted for too. I pretty much have the same reasoning as well.

It's tough cutting Jurcina because he's payed so well...

Vernarsky

It's surprising that Vernarsky received the most demotion votes (actually, tied with Zdenek Kutlak). Well, maybe not that surprising, since he has not shown that much in camp yet, and is young.

But, this begs the eternal question. How do we replace our #2 centre? Hilbert is hurt. B's seem reluctant to hand the spot over to Rolston. The Siberian Sidecar has yet to display his talents. Should we consider giving Kris a real shot at the job?

This is what I think the open day lineup should/could be

Murray- Thornton -Knuble
Samsonov-Zinovjev-Lapointe
Axelsson-Bergeron-Rolston
Stock-Vernarsky-McCarthy

McGillis-Boynton
Gill-Jillson
O'Donnell-Moran

Potvin
Raycroft

As far as Bergeron on the 3rd line I'm pretty sure that if he's on our opening night roster than he doesn't have to go back to juniors and we should keep him up with the Bruins until Hilbert is ready, then we could send Bergeron down to Providence and put Hilbert on the third line

True, but the best thing for him would most likely be playing 1 year in the AHL. He needs to work on some things, and he will come back even stronger next year.

The kid does have "some" offensive instincts. He may not show them in his first 2-3 years at the pro level, but he has a 95 mph shot and he is agile for carrying around 233 lbs.

Bergy cant play inb Providence for the whole season. He can only go down for a conditioning stint.

Also i heard somewhere that if this years rookies play the 10 games, then they cant go back to JR next year because they are part of the NHLPA. Not sure if that is true, but if it is Bergy would be sitting out at the age of 19, not exactly what you want to have happen.

Bergeron will make the team, but i dont think he will be around into November.

That should add another dimension to the Bergeron decision.

From what I've heard, at least, his game seems advanced enough that he doesn't need two years in juniors. At the same time, he may not be ready for the NHL right now, and even if he is, it would not be good for his development to not play at all next season.

I assume that the lockout year won't count as a year on his contract?
