How about

Cullen- Wilson - Neal
Smith - Jarnkrok - Forsberg
Bourque - Jokinen - Stahlberg/Beck
Nystrom/Clune - Gaustad - Sissons

Injuries will happen

I highly doubt OJ is our 3rd line C but I'm hopeful.
Take out Salomaki for Stalberg and I think that is closer to what we have.

Yep I forgot him. Let's hope after this season he won't be so easy to forget :-/

I still don't see Smith and Neal on the same line because of their style of play. We really only have two snipers and having them on the same line doesn't make sense. At this point I see it looking something like this to start the year.

Neal/Wilson/Forsberg
Cullen/Olli/Smith
Bourque/Jarnkrok/Stalberg
Nystrom/Gaustad/Clune or Salomaki

I could also see the top two line like this instead,

Cullen/Wilson/Smith
Neal/Olli/Forsberg

The article on NHL.com said that Cullen would get a shot at C under Lavy...so that kinda screws the pooch on Wilson and Hook both playing their natural C position.

Hmmmm

Forsberg - Wilson - Neal
Smith - Jarnkrok - Jokinen
Bourque - Cullen - Stalberg
Nystrom/Watson-Gaustad-Sissons/Clune
Beck as the first call-up.

Yep... good find. Good stuff in this article.

Quote:
A major variable is the introduction of new coach Peter Laviolette. Matt Cullen, who finished last season as a productive left wing, will get a try at center under Laviolette; Cullen enjoyed the most successful seasons of his career when they were with Carolina. Colin Wilson will also compete for a spot at center.

But Poile said that they had OJ "penciled in" at C. Bet hook gets moved to wing before Olli does.

honestly I'm not going to be fedup if jarnkrok is moved to wing, he seems like a playmaker type who could be suited to playing well on the wing also, and wasn't particularly good at faceoffs. Wilson I hope does stay at center though, he look markedly improved playing at C instead of wing. I'm hoping Forsberg makes the team out of camp and stays up though. It seems like he's been making the progress he needs to play at an NHL level.

The article also said Poile wants Neal at LW and Smith to stay at RW.

Neal has said he likes playing better on his off wing... That's one of the reasons I think Smith plays with Neal.

Yes, but..... assuming you do that Wilson is centering that line, right? So I realize Barry stressed D responsibility a little more than Peter, but doesn't Peter expect a little bit of D?

Filip was at Leksands first practice on ice yesterday. Looked a step above the rest. Really hard to knock him off the puck. Showed some nice moves and that great wrist shot of his.
Hoping to see him in Nashville coming season.

Love it.

2nd line RW should be the next hole targeted IMO, can be found for cheap. I'd defs be interested in looking at Paajarvi as a possibility on the wing.

I'd love to have Pääjärvi but he has underperformed his entire career. He'd end up taking a spot that a prospect could use.

Edit: I think Stålberg would be a better fit on the 2nd line than Pääjärvi would be.

You know Neal is a LWer and Smith is a RWer, that line proposal had them backwards. Its a LWer for the 2nd line that we need

Neal can play either wing. Like a lot of snipers, he enjoys playing the off wing so he can rip one-timers. He scored plenty of goals at RW for the Pens.

Yeah I know but the only time I see him being on the Right side is playing opposite to Weber on the Powerplay receiving passes from Josi. Good lord the shots we are going to see is going to be something else on the PP
