I really feel bad for the guy and wish him the best, he could have been a decent player.

Wonder if they will give him an AHL deal like Wellwood.

Defense for Phantoms next season shaping up.

If Hagg stays:

Hagg-Alt (Can not see them breaking it up)
Ghost-AHL vet
Manning-Laudisen
Konan

Murray loves Manning though so I can see him playing with Ghost which would be a huge, HUGE, mistake. That could seriously kill Ghost.

Lamarche could be in the mix too.

We should see a few fresh faces at the forward position though with so many guys not being resigned. I wonder if Johnston might be able to stick now. If Akeson sticks with the Flyers I'm curious how they will replace his scoring since noone on that team seems to be able to do it but him. Newbury is gone and VV is unlikely to come back, so who else is there? I guess Cousins might get a new role, and we may become more of a "score from the blueline" team with Ghost and Hagg back there.

I really hope this team has a good season. I'm tired of them always sucking.

My guess is they go heavy with vets on d and forward. Fill some of the slots on forward with some solid vets.

I feel sorry for Marc Andre Bourdon. He had a chance to make it in the NHL but the concussions did him in. I hope that he takes the rest of his life in consideration while he thinks over trying to play again in another organization. Being with the Flyers and seeing what Primeau and Pronger have had to do in order to just live a normal life after being dinged too often should send him the proper message.

They have 11 but guys like Johnson and Mathers were usually the fill ins. Also Ghoul hasnt signed any kind if contract yet. Didnt want an AHL deal so he probablly goes back for another season.

Edit: Found it. LINK

I do feel bad for him, but one of the reasons he's having concussion problems is because he tried playing through the first one he got. That we know of. It sucks because I think he deserved a chance to stay on the roster, he played well.

While looking through the UFA list, I think 2 names to look at for Allentown should be Keith Aucoin and Andrew Gordon. Both of them are ex-Bears and have played on the same line before. They would both add a veteran presence and some scoring as well. Just a thought.

I expect Alt and Hagg to be paired.
Ghost and Lauridsen make sense, the fast small guy and the "stay at home" guy.
I could see them promoted as pairs as well.

Just hoping Cousins + Leier both get top 6 (hopefully first line) roles since they are our main guys we need to develop there. Wouldn't mind seeing what Goumas can develop into as well

Depth Chart thus far:

Center
-Nick Cousins
-Blair Jones

Right Wing
-Brandon Alderson
-Andrew Gordon
-Derek Mathers
-Zack Stortini
-Petr Straka

Left Wing
-Kevin Goumas
-Andrew Hatch
-Andrew Johnston
-Taylor Leier
-Marcel Noebels

Defense
-Mark Alt
-Shayne Gostisbehere
-Robert Hagg
-Matt Konan
-Maxim Lamarche
-Oliver Lauridsen
-Brandon Manning

Goalies
-Anthony Stolarz
-Rob Zepp

I'm assuming Laughton & Akeson will be in the NHL & Hagg will be deciding to play in NA next year.
