Did Josefson play right wing in the AHL?

Butler - Zajac - Kovalchuk
Elias - Henrique - Clarkson
Poni - Loktionov - Josefson
Carter - Gionta - Bernier

I love how we went from laughable depth to solid depth in a few weeks with small moves lol. Lou is a wizard. When comparing this years roster to last years there's one major factor that I don't see people considering: Larsson's emergence. This team with a healthy Kovy, a more cohesive defensive unit, and Adam Larsson may be better than we were last season. Also, we may not be done making moves.

As much as I hate to admit it, we miss Parise's offense.

Of course we do. We miss his forechecking and his never losing a boards battle, and his penalty killing. But what are you going to do? Need to move on. I do think with Larsson in the lineup and developing we may have an overall better team now, but that depends on whether or not Josefson can find some points, whether Matteau can find some points, and how Butler and friends do from here on out.

Nikolai Kulemin is my top option. Tank, Toronto, tank.

We do miss it and his shootout skills in the regular season and while he didn't do much offensively in the playoffs last year, his tenacity and hard work on the forecheck will be what we miss the most I think.

Larsson's improvement alone isn't worth the difference between him and Zach + the difference in whatever defenseman Larsson's replacing (Tallinder/Harrold). We're not a better team than last year, and we're not going to be barring another top six scoring winger coming in...but at least we're close enough to it now to not do anything rash.

I'm not convinced that this is the case. I think Larsson is a pretty big upgrade over Harrold.

I dont think they would want a roster player in return, at least not one we can spare, they would want someone young, to build around, Tallinder and Volch are too expensive and too old for them

I know the flames dont have ANY goalies other than Danny Taylor, so Clermont would do them well

And maybe add a guy like Young too, but they have too many contracts, so we would need to take someone back. At least I think; Taylor may have put them up to 48. Through in a first and a 2nd and take Banks and street, maybe even bouma

ive watched both play in Abby, and they're awesome, and would be great for albany and would make great call ups in our system. Bouma's injured, but he's a very carter mixed with bernier kind of guy, and would be an epic 5th liner

so in total

Yoyo + Teddy + urbom + Clermont + 1st + 2nd + conditional pick if iginla doesnt re-sign
for Iginla + banks/street + bouma +

I agree completely. We also need Zajac to turn back into Zajac. He more than anyone needs to start producing.

I'm not worried about Zajac. About half his value is in his defense and face-offs. The offense will come.

Well Larsson's also replacing 'himself' since he started for much of last year until the playoffs. In the playoffs it was mostly Harrold, who had a good postseason and Tallinder, who had a surprisingly good couple of games for a guy that was on the shelf for months. But to crystalize the comparison it's

2012 Larsson > 2011 Larsson/Tallinder/Harrold
Parise >> Matteau/Butler

Larsson is playing at the level of a number one or two defenseman. That's a huge addition to the team. But one thing that slipped my mind was that Sal was playing like a number one as well. I may have just defeated my own argument hahaha

I'm happy with this. He was solid with us last season, and will be again now.

I'd take him or pretty much any top LW honestly. Butler and Matteau aren't going to cut it.

Not with Zajac and Kovy, no. Probably not.

I remember people saying Yayo was a RW on a line with Kruger in Sweden. Could have been the other way though, not positive.


Still think Poni starts on the first line though. And a Yayo-Lokti-Butler line would be very soft.
