Downie is a right winger and Marty moved over to the left. Also, I don't see Malone playing with Vinny because over 2 years they've had zero chemisty. I see Malone skating on the third line or with Stammer and Marty. I'm hoping Connolly proves to be the sniper Gagne wasn't and meshes with Vinny. Purcell would have to move over to the left side:

Marty - Stamkos - Downie
Purcell - Vinny - Connolly
Malone - Moore - Shannon
Hall - Thompson - Tyrell

Or if Ashton makes the team instead of Connolly (probably more likely):

Marty - Stamkos - Downie
Shannon - Vinny - Purcell
Malone - Moore - Tyrell
Hall - Thompson - Ashton

That was true 60 games ago.

The Malone chemistry problem isn't as big of an issue as it was, once Malone started to play like Vinny was mortal.

I'd rather not have him with Vinny, just because he really isn't top-six. Ville Leino is an apt comparison. He gets the long deal for $4.5m, but isn't the point producer he seems to be getting paid to be.

There's got to be a trade made somewhere in here.

Could Richard Panik slot in on the 2nd line RW?

Theoretically, yes. But he won't. Needs to find consistency in the A before he joins the big club

We all know how much Boucher likes to switch up line combos, so this is pure speculation at best. (This is also assuming both Stamkos and Purcell return, and I have no reason to assume otherwise)

St. Louis - Stamkos - Downie
Malone - Lecavalier - Purcell
Jones - Moore - Shannon
Tyrell - Thompson - Hall

A guy like Jones will battle with Ritola, Pyatt, Connolly, and Ashton for that last roster spot, which I made on the third line because I love the DNA line too much to split up. I also don't think Connolly or Ashton make the team, although we might see Ashton get a few call-ups during the year. Downie, Malone, and Shannon I think will all be rotated among the top 3 lines and all see the top 6 at some point.

Ohlund - Brewer
Hedman - Clark
Gilroy - Kubina

And of course, Bergeron and Gervais will likely be rotated in and out of the line-up, or used as a 7th defenseman (more likely, IMO).

And in goal,

Roloson
Garon

Yea i think this is the most likely lineup but i think pyatt will be the extra forward to switch in with jones every once in a while because boucher likes pyatt but yea i agree with everything you posted!

I'd like to see Wright get the LW position on the third line. He's got more size and scoring ability B. Jones. If Jones makes the team it's as the 12th FWD, ie pressbox most nights.

Tyrell and Hall are getting too much familiarity love in these line-ups. Although they might be favored to return to the same roles as last year, neither is a shoo-in. I think both can reclaim their spots, but again, both will have to work very hard to do so. I won't be surprised if Hall gets outhustled or Tyrell outmuscled by someone else hungry for their oppurtunity.

Jones, Pyatt, Shannon, and to a lesser extent Ritola and Wright all should have a pretty good idea of whats expected and what they need to do to claim a spot as well. Although more unlikely, its also not impossible one of our talented prospects sticks around due to some camp heroics or newfound chemistry.

Personally I think we have about 10 guys fighting for 4 spots, where most of the lineups envision 8 guys fighting for 2 spots.

I think wright is going to go down to the minors to have another year to develop offensively, i think he is going to replace moore next year as 3rd line center.

No way Ritola makes the team. His ear thing is a deal-breaker IMO.

I thought he was on a new kind of treatment that was taking care of that? Not that it matters, because I still don't think he makes the team, too much competition for those last 6 spots with too much talent for him to beat out.

It is rumored that the Rangers might buy out Wolski. 25 year old winger with a lot of talent, just needs a coach who can motivate him.

His contract has no bearing on if he makes the team or not. The team had no problem putting him through waivers when he was sent to Norfolk. And unless he trained really hard this offseason, I'd say there's a very high chance he doesn't make this team.

Wolski has done bad everywhere he has gone except for a tiny little bit in pheonix when he was great that's too much risk.

Welcome to HFBoards.
If it is an over payment take carter Ashton out of the equation and sub in James Wright Dallas always needs to shed salary because they have major ownership problems so they have no money. And they get rid of a salary like eriksson's in return they get some good young cheap talent with potential.

So EE expects Jones, Pyatt and Ashton to fight for the last F spot.

Just speculation. I've got a idea. Dustin Byfuglien played as winger in Chicago, and in Atlanta played as defender, and he performed much better. So, what if Marc-Andre Bergeron play as winger in the third line next season? He is better offensively than defensively. Could he play better? Do you think that would experiment with Bergeron came out as well as Byfuglien in Atlanta?

Downie - Stamkos - St. Louis
Malone - Lecavalier - Purcell
Shannon - Moore - Bergeron
Hall - Thompson - Tyrell

Brewer - Ohlund
Hedman - Clark
Kubina - Gilroy/Gervais

I think we have too many forwards fighting for that spot as it is, I can't see a natural defenseman (even if he is a terrible defenseman) beating out Jones, Ritola, Ashton AND Pyatt for a place.

I actually think MAB would make a solid forward on our team. Hes got hustle to his game and thats why I was defending him so much. Sure hes a crappy dman but hes got an offensive game to him. He could easily play some 4th line mins to see how he does and then if he makes some plays go and play with Moore and Shannon. That could be a good line.

No, while he does have full retard moments he provides needed mobility on the back end. If our forwards have an off night we look AWFUL.

the good thing about our 5-8 depth on D is that if Bergeron plays like he did most of the playoffs he can get some solid minutes. When he is slumping make him sit, and give someone else a chance


i don't like MAB as much as the next guy but in the playoffs he was one of our better D IMO in the right role
