I think looking for a #2RW and a #3LW is a lot more realistic than gunning for two top-6 RW.

Zubrus is more than capable to play on the top line. Actually, I kind of like seeing him play with Kovy.

I wanted Semin, but the more I think about it, I don't see us making any moves. Considering that goons WILL play despite what anyone wants or thinks, we have enough players to stay in the hunt. I could see Sykora coming back because of the cheap contract.

Henrique-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Zubrus-Elias-Sykora
Carter-Josefson-Clarkson
Barch-Gionta-Bernier
Janssen

I think you'll see some variation of that quite a bit.

I'm sure Barry Tallackson isn't up to anything, let's give him a call.

I'll be happy with any lineup as long as Henrique is on the top line

he played RW on Hall's line in Windsor, Kovy-Zajac-Henrique could be very scary, Zajac is strong on the boards, Henrique has the hands and Kovy has the shot
only problem is Henrique is great at faceoffs and Elias isn't so great

This. I'm sorry, but Henrique needs to be a center. Something like

Kovalchuk-Zajac/Henrique-Zubrus
Elias-Henrique/Zajac-Sykora
Tedenby-Josefson-Clarkson
Carter-Gionta-Bernier

would be ideal IMO. Elias can't win a draw to save his life.

I don't like Elias at C either, He lost all his speed when we hit the playoffs... which is probably why Sykora wont be back, just too slow

Kovalchuk-Zajac-Henrique blows most of our load on one line though, no?

And Henrique was Hall's center, I thought, not the other way around.

Elias had groin surgery recently which helped explain why he lost his speed

If Lou somehow manages to pull another top-6 winger out of his ass, I'd do terrible things to see:
Elias-Henrique-Kovy

Love Elias & Kovy together.

But, I'll probably only get my wish during a random PP unit.

"Kovalchuk-Zajac-Henrique blows most of our load on one line though, no?"
maybe, Kovy gets double shifted alot, we had Parise and Kovy on the same line last year with Zajac out to injury, take out Parise and put in Zajac next season
honestly I don't have a clue what the lines will look like, all I know is Henrique will break out

"And Henrique was Hall's center, I thought, not the other way around."
yea he was but they were switched around early on in the season until that line flourished and Henrique was set at #1 C, it was a dumb idea but I was just throwing it out there

Well, if we get Semin, then obviously the answer to your first question is no..........

I don't want to see Henrique as a winger when he played so damn well as a C.

We could always get back Steckel to make up for Henrique playing RW.

STECKS!!!

my old manager always told me: if you last more than 13 minutes, there is something wrong with someone.

I don't want to be a one line team either. We've lost a lot of our depth unfortunately. Stacking the top line might be the way to go.

I believe each of them played every forward position at some point, but Henrique was most often the centre or RW.
