I see a lot of similarities between Francis and Joe Primeau, Conacher's center in real life, so that one could work.

I think Fedorov definitely gets downgraded if you put on him on the left wing side. I have even more trouble picturing Francis at wing, to be honest.

Either works great with Conacher, but not sure they work great together...

Yeah I think I like Francis more with Conacher instead of Feds.

If I were to have these top two lines:

______ - Francis - Conacher
Shutt - Fedorov - ______

What types of wingers should I use for each line?

Honestly. I'd go:

Shutt-Francis-Conacher
-Fedorov-

And get some speed and passing on Fedorov's line.

This is probably what I'd do too. I think Shutt is more than capable of goign to the net and banging in Conacher rebounds

If anything, he's well suited to it. One of the best goal scorers who's accustomed to not being the primary shooter on a line.

Advice on where to put Doug Mohns? On Sergei's wing or #3 defenseman?

He's definitely more valuable as a defenseman, and not only because of positional scarcity. His two 5th place finishes in Norris voting are I believe better than anything he ever did as a LW.

He finished 5th in Norris twice, and was 3rd in All-Star LW voting twice. I think his 4th place at LW is better than his 3rd best D placing though.

I'd say wait and see who you can get before deciding, as he isn't out of place either way.

Conacher is a net crasher, so I'm not sure that is really what's needed.

Conacher is the primary scorer on the line, Shutt is there to clean up garbage or deflect incoming shots.

But Conacher is most famous for his shot, right? He can't always be in position to get to rebounds if he's the one shooting.

Wasn't Busher Jackson famous for driving the net even more than Conacher?

Yes, I believe this is true.

That's my choice. Tonelli just isn't a 1st line glue guy IMO. And Beliveau should be given a strong offensive weapon to work with, and you just won't get anyone better than Gilbert now for that. I'd then figure out what skillset you want next to McGee.

Gilbert's playmaking from the wing would be a strong complement to McGee's goalscoring at center, and I like Tonelli on that wing.

Jackson-Schmidt-Bauer
Martin-Cowley-Drillon

I really like my top 6, but worry people will think line #2 will be a liability. I don't think a 2nd line as good as mine will have trouble scoring, but should I consider dealing Martin or Drillon for a more two-way winger?

I think you need Bauer on the top line - Milt Schmit's biggest weakness is that he wasn't much of a puck carrier and Bauer can do that for him. Busher Jackson can carry the puck, but I wouldn't want him being the primary puck carrier on a line.

That sound line though... Not only are they a liability defensively, they are also soft.

Oh, that first line is set in stone at this point. Thats a suped-up version of the Kraut line. The second line may be ''soft'' but they're also all elite point producers, and I have some real bruisers on defence.

Having tough defensemen doesn't help your forwards in the offensive zone.

Yeah because a line of Rick Martin-Bill Cowley-Gordie Drillon would sure struggle.

I think I have my answer, though. Drillon and Martin will be on the block.

Any thoughts on my latest roster?

Firsov - Trottier - Broadbent
Tikkanen - Malkin - Bure

Pronger - Zubov
Davydov - Hollett


Gonna pick a goalie soon, honest.

Aside from the slight disadvantage I'll have in net, I think I've made up for it by putting together a fairly well-rounded team so far.

Right now I have:

Salming-Boivin
Goodfellow-______

What type of guy should I pair with Goodfellow, or should I move Boivin to play with Goodfellow, and pick someone to play with Salming? Any input or thoughts are appreciated.
