What is our line-up for the future?

Basically all of LACK will be gone after the season's end so that opens up 4 spots. I see CMac getting dealt at the trade deadline also so thats 5.

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
JVR-Grabovski-Kadri
Kulemin-Colborne-Frattin
Brown-Steckel-Komarov

Phaneuf-Gunnarsson
Gardiner-Schultz/Liles
Liles/Komisarek-Franson

Reimer
Scrivens

Upcoming Defence: Blacker, Percy, Holzer, Rielly
Upcoming Forwards
LW: Ross, Leivo, D'Amigo, Mueller
C: Colborne, McKegg, Abbot, Crescenzi
RW: Ashton, Biggs, Ryan , Scott

And how does this line-up fit Carlyle's system? If he goes for a pure checking, defensive team he is **** out of luck but I see it working if we employ a puck-posession strategy in a Detroit form.

Look at the "Future line up threads" of last season and you'll see something completely different than now.

One of the future line up threads after the lock out had Wellwood as our consensus #1 C, Tlustly on his wing and Stajan as the lock for number 2 C.

So disclaimer aside.

If we never trade/sign and everyone devlopes in a few years

Lupul - Kadri - Kessel
JVR - Grabo - Frattin
Ashton - Colborne - Kulie
Biggs - Ross - D'Amigo/Mueller

Rielly - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Blacker
Percy - Holzer

Scrivens
Reimer

I don't want to see Franson being scratched so often.
If we do not get a goalie I wouldn't be overly mad watching Reimer and Scrivens tag team. I feel very confident in them, I remember when I was on the tank bandwagon Scrivens kept winning us games and I was like fuuuuck play Gus

I was on the temporary "Play Rynnas" bandwagon.

I doubt it will be this but based on what we have in the system now:

Lupul-xxxxx-Kessel
JVR-Grabo-Kadri
D'Amigo-McKegg-Frattin
Ross-xxxxx-Biggs

Rielly-Phaneuf
Gardiner-Percy
Blacker-Finn

Scrivens
Reimer/Owuya

Trades will obviously be made because I think Biggs and Ross will be better than 4th liners.

That looks pretty close, but I have to think Bozak gets swapped for someone with size, long term. Gunnarson probably should probabaly be upgraded too. I have to say though, I like our group, I think we are getting close.

I'm not sure how I would personally predict the line up. I mean we can talk about our prospects developing, but who knows when it comes to trades, free agency etc.

Gone before the 2013-14 season:

CMac (unless Kadri is traded in a package deal)
Franson

Most likely gone but slight possibility they're brought back at a reduced rate:

Connolly
Lombardi
Armstrong

In a perfect world our prospects develop well and we have some big bodies in the line-up. I can see the forward group working well under Carlyle's system, but we do have glaring holes up the middle. Eventually this problem will be addressed. Mobility from the back end is an asset, but they lack the truculence Burke preaches.

Van Riemsdyk Unknown Kessel
Kadri Colborne Ashton
Ross Unknown Biggs
Brown Unknown Ryan
Komarov

Rielly Phaneuf
Gardiner Unknown **Hopefully Schultz for a dynamic top 4
Percy Finn
Blacker

Unknown
Reimer **Potentially a starter goalie.

Two of Ross, D'amigo, McKegg & Biggs will be 3rd line material, two will most likely not make the NHL.
Where is Kulemin, Gunnarsson, and Bozak? All are serviceable players that have higher possibilities then some of these guys to be on this team long term.

Lupul - Bozak - Kessel (Bozak becomes expendable or 3rd line centre if we get a first line centre)
JVR - Grabovski - Kadri/Frattin
Kulemin - Colborne - Biggs
Ross - XXXX - Brown/Ashton

Phaneuf - Reilly
Gardiner - Percy/Blacker
Gunnarsson - Franson/Holzer

Big fan of McKegg but I believe him & D'amigo will not to translate their skills to the NHL

Does anyone else notice that Phaneuf looks really out of the type of D line-up we have/will have now?

If Bozak is in our long-term plans as the number 1 center then we are going to have problems. If it's as 3rd line center then fine.

I hope Kulie is still around because he's probably my 2nd favourite forward on the team, but I just have this feeling he will be traded eventually.

Same feeling on Gunnar. He is a very solid dman but we will (hopefully) have a lot of depth at the d position in the future so eventually some will have to be moved. I could see him being one of the players moved. Id be happy to keep him though.

I think D'Amigo has what it takes to make it as at least a 3rd liner. Im not sure on McKegg yet though.

I think Liles, Gunnarson, Franson, MacArthur, & Kadri become expendable for the right pieces if Biggs, Frattin, Ross, Holzer, Percy, Blacker & Reilly pan out.
