I really think they give Russell the 2nd pairing because of the promise he showed last year. I fully expect the flames to roll 2nd and 3rd pairings out evenly with Gio and TJ taking on most of the workload. with Wideman being on the PP with his booming shot and Russell on PK with his kevlar skate covers getting abused


I suppose they should show some faith in Engelland and put him in th3 5/6 roll, since they did give him like 3 X 3 on July 1st but I like Diaz and his versatility and how he can lay huge hits, camp is going to be competitive and I really hope the lineup is based on merit, work ethic and not contract

No. Frankly, I don't think I could even carry Gaudreau, though.

You are allowed to have 23 guys on your roster, so yeah, you could sit Grats, Byron and Diaz all in the pressbox.

We have too many forwards to make a lineup. Let's wait until Wideman hits one in the foot with a slapshot before making too many predictions.

If that is the case, there is no reason for Diaz to come to camp.

Russell is not going to lose his job during training camp. Period.

Assuming Backlund can possibly be out longer than anticipated (could be about another month), what are your lines without him?

If he is still out at the start of the season, I'd just put Stajan or Monahan into his spot and give Bennett his 9 games on the third line.

Either him or Reinhart/Granlund would make me happy too. I think from what I have seen thus far, I would have Reinhart. Or, you can always put Colborne as the 3rd C and have Baertschi playing the LW.

This, this is a good plan. This is why I love you.

Just a few tweaks... Jones sucks.

2nd line: Glencross - Stajan - Byron
4th line: Bollig - Bouma - McGrattan

What has Diaz shown that Russell hasn't for you to compare this way? Russell may never be more than a bottom-3 defender but he's definitely earned his contract extension here in that time.

I'd be fine with that too. I'd like to give Jones another shot before burying him sending him to the depths of hell.

I really hope he turns out as an alright 3rd line RW. He has the size and everything, but from what I've heard from training camp and the preseason game at the Oilers, he hasn't improved. Byron and Bollig deserve the roster spot before him.

Lots of options, Stajan and Mony are in the top 6. Colborne, Reinhart, Granlund, Arnold, Bouma, Knight and as AS said, Bennett could get his 9 game audition.

At this point in training camp this is what I want the lineup to be on opening night:
Glencross,Stajan,Raymond
Gaudreu,Monohan,Hudler
Colborne,Backlund,Setoguchi
Ferland/Byron,Bouma,Jones
* sub in Mcgratten, Bollig for the tough games

(If backlund is injured to start the season my 3rd line would be Baertchi,Colborne,Setoguchi)

Giordano,Brodie
Smid,Wideman
Russel,Engelland

Hiller
Ramo

^ You really feel like Ferland will make it over Baertschi or Reinhart??

Bit of a headscratcher there. Byron has more experience than either Ferland/Baertschi/Reinhart combined but he needs to play with 100% effort and Reinhart/Baertschi have equal or better skillsets, as well as bigger bodies. If anything it'll be Baertschi/Byron or Baertschi/Reinhart.

Healthy opening night lines for me are:

1) Hudler - Backlund - Glencross
2A) Colborne - Monahan - Raymond
2B) Jones - Stajan - Setoguchi
4) Reinhart/Byron - Bouma - Wolf/McGrattan

Keeps the Colborne-Monahan chemistry intact, gives Backlund some grit and playmaking up front, Stajan can solidly anchor the third line defensively and provide some secondary scoring, and nice crash and bang fourth line options in Wolf and Reinhart.

Giordano - Brodie
Wideman - Engelland/Russell
Russell/Engelland - Smid

Pretty self-explanatory. Wish the defense was a little more mobile but it is what it is. Not feeling the play of Brookbank or Diaz, really, so not listed as extras.

Ramo
Hiller

Ramo gets the nod due to UFA 'show me' status and Hiller will platoon goaltending duties with 35-45 games each depending on performance/injuries.

Not including Gaudreau / Bennett because I feel like they will be with Adirondack/Kingston at some point regardless of their main camp stint. Trying to keep it to players we'll see regularly from November - April+.

A couple things. Seto & Jones are both RW and will not be playing together on the same line. Wolf is LW. Glencross is LW. Engelland and Wideman are both RD and will nto play together, plus a Wideman/Russell pairing is a bad idea defensively.
