WOOT Pat Jablonski

I think they both. Andrei already showed us a glimpse of what he can do.

Still, naturally, while it's fun to imagine a team like this, think about it with 1 or 2 good free agents added (even say Souray and a scorer). You have a real serious contender if some of these guys pan out.
hey no Perezhogin?

Right, we are going to win the Stanley Cup in 2009 with a bunch of sweetheart, soft Euro's in our line-up. I can just see a big physical team like the Sharks with a whole pile of Canadian kids licking their chops to get at us.

I think Sergei is a little bit overated, he seem to be struggling a bit in the playoffs.. or maybe is he tired? anyway, we cant say he is part of the future yet, i can say he certainly will be a nice fit in the AHL before i have an honest opinion on his potential success in the NHL, Andrei on the other hand as all the skills, but i am surprise to see how badly his timing is on his best asset (shots) he does have a tremendous shot.. but seemed like was completly lost on WHEN to shoot, and where.. I know he will progress but i worry he might be a 20-25 goal scorer instead of the 35-40 some people tought.. still seem like potential star.

Forgot about him. Hrm. Honestly I could see him being dealt in the near future, but for the purpose of this exercise, we can insert him into Milroy's spot for now.

... REALLY NOT SOLD on having Valentenko being able to keep on to a Top-4 in the NHL... Heck, not even sold on being able to GRAB any roster spot for that matter.

Nor am I... but the idea was to make a roster of our own draft picks. You can put Maxwell where Grab is, but in 2 years, if one of the two is NHL-ready, I would think Grabs has the inside track right now.

And as for Valentenko,well... we need another d-man for that team lol. So you can choose him, or Fischer, or Carle, or even Korneev if you want.

It's not really how the team will look, and I doubt it's how any of us want the team to look. It was just for fun.

I think these things are clear for 2 years from now:
- Chris Higgins, Tomas Plekanec, Guillaume Latendresse, and Andrei Kostitsyn should be big contributors offensively if this team is headed in the right direction.

- Sergei Kostitsyn may or may not be NHL ready. Hopefully he is, and will re-create instant chemistry with his brother. Grabovski also may or may not adapt to the physical NHL game fully, but hopefully he will.

- Halak and Price should be the goaltending duo. Who the starter is that year is still a question mark, though my bet is on Price.

- And finally, the most clear thing of all, our roster will not look anything like the proposed one. Trades, free agent signings, and other such moves will alter it, not to mention that it will be the final year of Kovalev, Bouillon, and Dandenault's contracts, and moving them might be difficult.

I also think that if we can somehow bring in or develop the right players so that a combination like Chris Higgins - Tomas Plekanec - Andrei Kostitsyn can be our "third" line, we will end up with a team comparable in a sense to this year's Buffalo Sabres, and thus a top contender. That is the direction I see the team headed, and hopefully it works out.

Or something akin to...

Chris Higgins - Saku Koivu - UFA
Andrei Kostitsyn - UFA - Sergei Kostitsyn
Tomas Plekanec - Kyle Chipchura - Alexander Perezhogin
Guillaume Latendresse - Maxim Lapierre - Steve Begin

Andrei Markov - Mike Komisarek
Sheldon Souray - TRADE
Mark Streit - Mathieu Dandenault

Carey Price
Jaroslav Halak

That implies some big steps, such as moving Kovalev and Bouillon, using Ryder as a trade chip, and being able to attract two offensive threats, but that team, on paper, to me, is a young and talented Stanley Cup contender in 2 years time if the youngsters don't all crash and burn.

Really! I thought the same thing...I voted for him because 'Red Light' Racicot wasn't an option

I voted for only Andrei at this point because it's impossible to say where Sergei will fit in with the Bulldogs next season and the Habs organization in years to come until he actually turns pro.
