Build the 2013-14 starting line-up (3 extra players)

Let's build together the Habs 2013-14 starting line-up. This would be an "injury free" line-up, so let's do as if Gionta and Emelin were ready to start on day one.

Try to build lines that work, instead of just voting for the best player for each position.

Between (brackets) is the normal position for this player. You can always vote to put a player in another position.

Time to pick the 3 extra roster players. Please select at least 1 forward and 1 defenseman, and a 3rd player of your choice.

FORWARDS

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Brière
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
Bourque - Desharnais - Gionta
Prust - White - Moen
Extra : ????

DEFENSEMEN

Gorges - Subban
Markov - Emelin
Murray - Diaz
Extra : ????

GOALIES

????
????

23rd player (forward or defense) : ????

--------------------------------
1st call-up (offense) : ????
2nd call-up (offense) : ????
3rd call-up (offense) : ????
4th call-up (offense) : ????
1st call-up (defense) : ????
2nd call-up (defense) : ????
3rd call-up (defense) : ????
1st call-up (goalie) : ????

My votes goes to Parros, Dumont and Bouillon.

Since Drewiske has a one-way contract, it means that he would be traded or waived if every defenseman is healthy (which almost never happens in reality). But I don't see why we would keep 2 extra defensemen on the roster.

It also means that Tinordi would start with Hamilton. Nothing wrong about this. I'd rather see him play 25 minutes a game in the AHL and be called-up when he's needed, than see him wait for his turn in the stands.

The line up has potential.Good speed, size and grit. I also like the depth. Honestly I still think we need a change or two.

for whoever votes Tinordi for this do you realise that means he will be sitting in a press box gaining no experience. leave him in the AHL

Awards:
Drewiske and Bouillon on D, Parros as the 13th forward.

Guys like Thomas, Dumont, Tinordi and Beaulieu can continue to progress in Hamilton. A few will be ready next year and if any of them make strides to push into the line-up as soon as this upcoming season, Bergevin can weigh his option and make a trade to acquire some assets.

Voted Bouillon, Parros and Dumont.

This said, Drewiske will start the season in Montreal as 7th D. Bouillon will probably end up playing with Markov and Dumont will start in the minors.

You realize that this suggestion means we start the year with 6 D-Men?

And how on Earth is Drewiske superior to Bouillon?!?!?!

I believe Dumont has to clear waivers now. It seems the 4th line centre spot is Dumonts imo.

Exactly why I voted for these guys too.

Meh... you're possibly right.
Still, if DD44 doesn't remain in Montreal, there's only 6 D-Men, Unless the team sends down Parros (extremely unlikely -- watch him even play on first game), White (would be even dumber) or Bouillon (will be in the starting lineup at the beginning of the season anyways...)

All this confusion made by having Emelin in the 2nd RD spot in the starting lineup while it's obvious he won't be there (even if he'S totally our 2nd Right D-Men otherwise).

Yeah but you also realize that Emelin is in the line-up here? Drewiske almost makes 3x less, is bigger and Bouillon would be a good leader for Hamilton.

First, Emelin is injured, thus Bouillon will begin the season in Montreal regardless.
Second... The salary argument actually favors Bouillon, because the team is paying them anyways, and Bouillon will actually have some of its salary on the cap if sent in the AHL. DD? Not a penny on the cap, and paying 600K to a guy to play on the farm team is less annoying than paying 1.5M to a guy to play on the farm team.
Third, I thought the idea was to have the best possible team.
Fourth, considering how you reacted towards Bouillon, I can't take seriously what you said about "bringing leadership".

In this case, size is definitely overrated. Bouillon is a much better player and it's the only thing we should consider.

You're right about the 35+ contract, completely forgot about that. I dont like Bouillon but I can still acknowledge that a veteran like him would be beneficial for Hamilton.

But do you understand that Bouillon would have never signed a contract if he wasn't going to play for Montreal? He's never going to play in Hamilton, not even one game.

He signed here to finish his career. That's what's gonna happen, we like or not.

It'S not even about the 35+ contract.
It's about the fact that nowadays, salaries cannot be buried in the AHL, except for a 900K part of it.

Bouillon makes more than 900K. Drewiskie doesn't.

Waive Drewiski, pick up a rookie that can use the time. There's somewhat of a logjam in Hamilton too no?
