what about Ryan Ellis, when is he ready to step up?
on D, Weber, Suter, Klein, and Blum are guarenteed spots. Josi, Ellis, Ekholm, Laakso, Boullion (if healthy) and Hillen will fight for 5-7. At this point, it's anyone's guess who gets its. Ellis is in the mix, but far from guarenteed a spot.
I was wanting to wait till we know for sure what our roster will be opening night. Im expecting a move or two, but heres my shot with current roster.
Erat-Legwand-Wilson(Id start Wilson on top 6 but thats just me)
We have so many NHL ready forwards it makes me think were gonna have to make a deal
I think Poile if any other year would go into the season with your projected lineup and let it play out and see who does better in training camp but this year is different because of the big 3. He knows that not only Weber is looking at what he is doing but so is Suter and Rinne and it would be behoove NJ to try and trade Parise before he turns into a rental which the price goes down know that he will be a rental and out
You don't think Ekholm makes it? I know you're a big fan and with the out clause you would think he would have the advantage if it's close.
I'm debating very much the decision between Ekholm and Josi, but for the PP...I think Josi gets the edge. If Ekholm is close in camp, I think he'd stay awaiting a recall, but if he's an early cut then he'd return. Training camp will make those decisions. I think we're set on D right now...
