Montoya is def gonna start in Hartford. Maloney said it himself. Look at the rookie camp photos and youll see that Lundqvist already is donning a new NYR mask. Id say thats reason enough to see a precamp decision has been made. Whether or not Montoya outplays him, hes two years younger and has no professional level experience.
Thats a nice layout you got there. Looks about right
If I had to call it now, I would add the triad of Betts, Ward and Ortmeier to the list of 6 you gave..And none of these are really a youth....
I think there will be a battle for three spots (say strudwick will be the 13th forward) amongst the likes of Lundmark, Moore, Giroux, Murrray, Prucha, Hollweg and others...MY call right now is Prucha, Hollweg and the winner of Giroux/Balej...
On D, I think it's all set with Poti, Kaspar,Malik,Roszival,Tyutin and Kondraitev with Lampman and Rullier MAYBE fighting for a 7th spot...
Probably Weekes starting as #1 and Lunqvist to back him up unless Montoya
proves he's better than Lunqvist.
Your missing Garth Murray.
You only put down 4 regulars and didnt mention the other two would be.
This is what I think this team will look like when the season starts FOWARDS:
Blair Betts/Dominic Moore
