True, but who belongs there instead? It isn't Samuelsson, that's for sure - although he could end up there anyway. I'd like it to be Semin, but I don't see that happening. I just don't see anyone else who is a good fit there, and those 3 played well as a line last year.

And it won't be any of Tootoo/Eaves/Mursak either.

It is what it is.

If Hudler shot as much as Franzen last season (127 vs 211 respectively) at his rate of 19.7%, that equals 41.567 goals.

I'm not saying he will -- nor am I saying it's even remotely likely -- just that it is technically possible.

I'd watch. One request, though.

Wear a Hudler jersey.

You must be related to Hudler if you are taking this so seriously. I didn't insult you, show some class. You don't have revert to insults because your statements are so mindnumbingly dumb.

Hudler never scored 40 goals and never will. If he shoots more, he'll get 40 goals? It's always "technically" possible, but highly unlikely.

There really seems to be a lack of reading comprehension around here. I suppose it's time for another hiatus. Sigh.

Oooh, he should do one of those split-team deals with Calgary on one side and Detroit on the other.

Hudler probably has a better chance at meeting Bilbo Baggins in the shire than he does scoring 40 goals. I could see him hitting 30-30 though.

The question to ask is who in GR loses their waiver exempt status after this year. The answer to that question will go a long way to answering the quiestion in the OP. I used to keep up w these things more, but dropped the ball lately.

I see a top 5 of Z, Dats, Brunner, Flip, and Franzen
Bottom 6 include Helm, Gator, and I'd say Tootoo is making a case to get re-signed.
That leaves 4 dressed spots needing to be filled. I know there's more players signed, but we've got those two buyouts available. Though Holland is probably too loyal to use 'em, they're currently still in play. If I can find the answer to my question, I'll continue this analysis later.

Tootoo is under contract for two more years after this one.

D'oh, my mind was thinking it was a 1 year deal. Knew something was off, but couldn't put my finger on it

I would't mind if our "for sure" 2013-2014 line-up heading into the off-season to look something like this:

Franzen - Z - Nose
Flip - Datsyuk - Bert
Tatar - Helm - Nyquist
Abby - Sheahan - Tootoo

Kronner - Ericsson
Smith - White
? - ?

*maybe* keep Kindle depending on how he plays out the rest of the year.

Hudler - Tanguay - Cervenka
Glencross - Byron/Stajan - Iginla
Cammy - Stajan/Byron - Stempniak
Comeau - Jones - Jackman

Huds is on their top line. He's playing like it. Pots his 4th goal tonight against Dallas and has 9 pts now.

I wonder if we can convert Tootoo into something like Clarkson? Former enforcer hitter type that scores

It doesn't seem like they plan on giving him any sort of offensive minutes on this club. Truth to the matter though is that he scored 30 points last year and has scored at about a similar pace(but in less games) to Abdelkader over the last couple of seasons. The guy wouldn't exactly make a fool of himself on the third line.

Love the forward lines. I'd switch Bert and Nyquist though, feel like that third line would be a little too easy to play against otherwise. I think those four D's are the keepers too. If we could find a top pairing and top four guy on top of them we'd start to look pretty good.

Just like Brunner has 9 points, plays on the top line, and is 75% cheaper.

He won't be 75% cheaper next season.
