Hope Leo is here to stay for a while. He plays physical, and he can produce offensively as well

I could see Leo sticking on the 2nd line until Lupul comes back, which will be just fine.

Frattin-Kadri-Leo will eventually be line 3 (IMO).

JVR-Grabo-Kulie(line 2)

Lupul-Bozie-Kessel(line 1)

McClement-?-? (insert player depending on night and team here).

Really hard to justify taking JVR off the 1st line with his play, and putting him on our defensive line.

Almost better to go with:
Lupul Bozak Kessel
Komarov Grabbo Kulemin
JVR Kadri Frattin
McLaren McClem Orr

But then what about mac, right? Lupul returning is going to force the Leafs' hand up front, I think.

He has lived up to the hype in every shape and form; absolutely phenomenal addition. A great energy player that can play in every location on the ice.

I see no point in disturbing this teams chemistry, a guy like Chris Stewart is an obvious choice, but the fact that a team like Colorado gave up on him, despite his great numbers, and a team like St.Louis is now entertaining the possibility, makes me a little wary.

Stewarts have a reputation for being out of shape, and lazy.

Having him though, would make this team easily, the most intimidating team in the NHL.

Only problem is, what happens once Lupul returns? Komarov to the 4th line? That is a waste of his ability, and will only slow down his development.

I'm thinking this team is in more need of a few ahl ready prospects, gotta fill the cupboards back up, keep them on the up, and developing that winning attitude.

Mac can go, he hasn't been anything near the physical\energetic force he was a few years ago when he earned his contract.

FTR I'd rather see Lupul with Kadri and Frattin, then VanRiemsdyk. Rather have Kadri, Frattin under Lups wing, with Vanriemsdyk confidence continuing to grow while playing with Kessel.

I love komarovs play believe me but people were saying the same thing about armstrong. Captain material/best thing since tucker etc. Lets just chill and enjoy him no captain proposals please. Phaneuf is the obvious captain on this team.

Don't think Colorado does that. We'd still have to add 1 more peice (JVR or Kadri).

No he was talking about Ryan O'Reilly, not a 1st. line center.

ROR has the upside to be a 1st line center and he's still very much in his controllable years. This isn't equivalent to trading for a guy on a huge contract in his UFA years (i.e Rick Nash).

Perhaps I might have overshot the offer a bit, but realistically, that's the type of deal you have to make to get a premium position these days (#1 C are the most sought after commodity). Gardiner and 1 more peice sound about right, I wouldn't offer Kadri or JVR personally, but that's what it would take. Kulemin is borderline worth a second + 3rd in itself.

Fact is, your not going to get an high upside #1 C prospect in today's market without giving up a lot in return.

The most I'd be willing to give up personally is Gardiner and Frattin, but I don't think Colorado does that. Kadri or JVR would be required to take that deal over the top.

Yeah, this is dumb.

I'm a huge fan of Komarov but let's be honest here, that's quite a leap.

Captain Komarov?!

Okay, seriously, some people need to lay off the booze. I like the guy, I think he's been an awesome addition to the team. He hits, he chrips, and occasionally scores. Not to mention he does the hitting a chirping, while keeping his time in the penalty box to a minimum. But he's NOT captain material.

He's basically what Colby Armstrong should've been, and then some. At any rate, he's an ideal 3rd liner, who could step up and do some occasional 2nd line duty when injuries come along.

hes a nice player to have, but when we're healthy he should be a 4th liner.

No to captain. Yes to being a great pest and checker. Hope he starts doing his crowd warm up thing after the warm up skates before games.

Come on don't take this so seriously!

It isn't like he's some kid just out of junior who can't skate being named captain by half the board here.
