The only reason I posted that line is because someone said Carcillo may be available. But I am all for that line. It would be the most hated in the league.

Carcillo hasn't been useful since 2010. Can't believe people actually want this guy.

You probably want Fast playing the 4th line LW. So we can have some speed and skill on the 4th line. Give me a break.

Except in 2010 and 2012. In thos years, he signed Frolov (one year gamble), and three fourth liners. There's no one in UFA worth going after.

Doubt any of our defenseman are moved. Maybe Boyle. That's about it.
Well 2012 he didnt have to dip into UFA really ,he traded for Nash who was supposed to put us over the top until Richards and Gaborik fell off a cliff.

No, I want someone who doesn't suck on the fourth line. Carcillo sucks.

I'm hoping for Lindberg to make the team in camp and push Boyle to the LW on the fourth line.

So have a soft swede as your 4th line center. That will work out well. Hes probably tougher than Boyle though. Biggest waste of 6'7 240.

If you actually knew what you were talking about, you'd know that Lindberg isn't soft. Apparently nationality determines that in your world.

Seems like fans are split between wanting a team that is tough and hits or a team that has skill and can score.

So when he gets pushed around this year will he push back? Will he stick up for himself? That's all I'm worried about. How do you know if he is soft or not. He was playing in the Swedish Elite League... Going to be a lot different over here.

I think most fans want both. Cup-winning teams have both.

You can't win games unless you score goals.

I'd rather have the talented team. Hard to find big guys who can hit and score, especially to fill a spot on all 4 lines. Nash and Kreider fit the big guys with talent roles, gonna have to be happy with that.

I'd like a decent mix of grit and skill. Of course, that's ideal for any team in the NHL.

I agree with this. A team like the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in part because they're not dumb enough to hand a bottom-six roster spot to some soft Swedish center. Everyone knows that doesn't work out.


Oh, what's that? Marcus Kruger is Swedish? And plays center? And is on the Blackhawks?


Hmm....

I don't want a whole team of toughness. I want a 4th line with tough players on it. Not goons, guys who can still play but are tough.

Toughness will be addressed wen McIlrath makes the team. Would like to add a tough winger with size as well. Not even a top-6er, one who can add maybe 10 goals and intimidate. Clowe could have been that guy, but, of course, he had to get two concussions.

If they go with a third line of Hagelin-Richards-Fast

There is no reason they can't go with a 4th line of Boyle-Lindberg-Dorsett

Have 2 fantasic draw guys. I originally was thinking of an all Swede line of Hagelin-Lindberg-Fast but when they kept Richards, I figured Lindberg will center the 4th line.

No one knows, it hasn't been revealed either way.
