Joe Bowen on Leafs TV just now: "Filip Forsberg...name sound familiar? Well, it should. His dad was a pretty good player for the Colorado Avalanche."

Now Fisher is out I think we'll see Forsberg up with the big club. Hopefully gets some PP time and top 6 play.

I think i'd rather have Fiala up then Forsberg. Going by what I saw at the scrimmage, Fiala looked more ready to play in the NHL. He was shifty, made great passes, and could skate with our guys right out of the gate. Im only worried about Fiala's size but I think he can handle himself.

Forsberg looks like he has most definitely improved over last year, but I think he needs at least a half of a season in Milwaukee.

Completely disagree. Forsberg looked very good - predicting he makes the team out of camp this season.

Per capgeek Forsberg is exempt for 2 more years or 142 more games.

I think he's ready, and with the defensive work I've seen from him in Milwaukee I think it'd be likely even if we still had Trotz.

Fiala is obviously very skilled but he's still small and will need a couple of years, one in Sweden and one in NA, before he'll be able to make the jump.

Fiala is 5'11 185 pounds, that is bigger then a few guys are effective in the NHL. He was holding guys off in the scrimmage, not NHL strong, but it shows he isn't weak. Not to mention we have a good bit of offseason left.

He looked good, don't get me wrong. I think he was the best out there besides Fiala, but I just like Fiala's game better i guess. Forsberg's outlet pass was very good though.


Another guy who doesn't get a lot of talk here is Jimmy Vesey, he has some wheels. I think he could be a good player for us one day.

What about Leipsic ? Any chance we see him get called up ?

Wouldn't mind shipping off Bourque and Watson for picks and rolling this for the fall


Neal-Cullen-Forsberg ( I think Cullen is our best playmaker )

Hook- Wilson Smith

Leipsic- Jokinen-Stalberg

Sissons-goose- Nystrom

I don't see any reason we start the clock ticking on Fialas ELC when we have slew of prospects who have been waiting for a chance to prove they belong in the NHL.

Id put Fialas chances at making the preds roster this fall as close to zero as you can get...

The only way I see it happening is if he comes to camp and just burns the place down.

If he impresses in camp, he may get a chance to play a few games at the start of the season. There's always the ELC slide rule. I doubt Laviolette cares how long the prospects have been waiting. He'll ice whichever players fit his system and give the Preds the best chance to win.

I thought Forsberg was impressive during the scrimmage game along with Veilleux. Forsberg should make the team I think.

Highly doubt Leipsic makes it. I think the most likely prospects to make the team are Salomaki and Forsberg.

No way that I want to see Cullen at center and Wilson at wing. Both were complete garbage last year at those spots. Wilson looked a lot more comfortable after he was moved to center, and Cullen got hot after being moved to Fisher's wing.

Looks like he's got Wilson at center.

In my ideal world with this current roster it's
1st line:
Smith Wilson Neal
2nd line:
Forsberg Hook Cullen
3rd line:
Bourque Jokinen Salomaki
4th line:
Nystrom Gaustad Sissons

I highly doubt OJ is our 3rd line C but I'm hopeful.

I know this is your ideal world, but I do not see Salomaki, Sissons and Forsberg all making the roster. This would also imply that we are waiving Beck.
