Pretty generous, other than I assume they have EJ and McGinn at less than 38 points. Only way Tanguay puts up that few is if he is hurt.

Its crazy how amazing it is to have Mack and Duchene on the same team.

On a side note, what goalie in their right mind would put themselves on the ice against 3 of the best hockey players in the league haha.

No prob. Was from yesterday. Guy in Halifax media is a gold mine. I think he's the Mooseheads radio guy. He follows the off season workouts there.

Seriously we are so lucky. That video just proves to me how amazing MacKinnon is going to be, there was one pass he made that was straight filthy. And there was another one where took a pass from Crosby one timed it perfectly top shelf over a well positioned goalie like it was nothing.

I'm so excited for the season to start.

Bringing some football terminology here, but Crosby's first touches are pretty damn amazing.

Seriously hope he can do more than that. If he can crack at least 65 games he should do at least 55 pts. Plus he'll be at 1000 games in his career.

Tanguay is 34, it's not like he's ancient. And he's a playmaker no? He doesn't need to be an insane physical specimen to perform. He's going to put up a lot of points if he's healthy.

Now keep in mind i dont follow the Avs a whole lot, so i dont know if some players cant play certain positions, especially on D. But anyways here's my lineup:

Landeskog - Duchene - MacKinnon
Tanguay - O'Reilly - Iginla
McGinn - Mitchell - Briere
Bordeleau - Winchester - Talbot
McLeod
Cliche

All lines with capable FO guys. 1st line brings the offense with skill, speed and youth. 2nd line is kinda slow but there's a lot experience and i see the chemistry, so secondary scoring should be there. 3rd line is a semi-shut down line that can score as well. Briere can bring the skill element on that line. 4th line should be a pretty good one, i think Winchester will do well in Colorado.

Johnson - Hejda
Barrie - Holden
Elliott - Stuart
Redmond
Guenin

I know Hejda was bad in the playoffs but unless he and Holden switch places i see no other option. I actually think defense is better than last year. Every pairing with RH and LH defenseman. Im expecting Elliott to take the next step, playing with experienced Stuart is not that bad. Redmond and Guenin are also pretty sweet depth defensemen. Wilson can be buried in the minors for some xtra cap space.

Varlamov
Berra

Berra has to step up and be a solid backup but honestly im not sure if thats going to happen. Never quite understood the contract.

All in all i like the Avs. Playoff team to me and i can see the potential there to upset someone once they get there. Expecting a bit more difficult season than last year though.

You are way off with the top 6. Landeskog and MacKinnon have zero chemistry with Duchene. Both Duchene and MacKinnon need to have the puck on their stick. They shouldn't be on the same line.

O'Reilly - Duchene - Iginla
Landeskog - MacKinnon - Tanguay

You've also got all our RHD on the left side. Elliott won't be in the starting lineup and Stuart will be in the top-4.

Hejda/Stuart - EJ
Hejda/Stuart - Barrie
Holden - Redmond

Your bottom six looks right. Maybe McLeod in for Bordeleau though.

Yeah i realized after the post that the top 6 is probably off, but wanted to see replies anyways.

Im pretty sure Tanguay is LW, so swap him with Landeskog and that top 6 looks pretty good.

As far as the defense goes, i didnt really care for the actual sides. Just the pairings itself. How can you be so sure that Elliott doesnt make the team? Its basically either the full year in AHL or NHL, or they can bring him up once since he's not waiver exempt. If he's anything near ready i'd say give him a chance right from the start since he's probably going to be brought up at some point anyways. And if im not horribly mistaken, Lake Erie isnt a very good AHL team so might be better to play with better players on the big club. Then again if Redmond outplays him it'd be bad for him to sit on the pressbox.

Tanguay played RW last year. I doubt he and Lando would switch now. I would imagine the only way he plays LW is if RoR is at center moving MacK over to the right, like you originally had it.

There are going to be 10 defensemen under contract so at minimum two have to go. Redmond isn't getting cut so Elliott is going to have to beat some guys out and I'm not sure if he will. I don't know that Roy is especially high on him and there isn't a great place for him on the team. He could get claimed if sent down. They could cut Wilson and Noreau, two that surely would clear and keep Elliott in a rotation with Redmond and Guenin. He's not going to get a spot outright, there is too much competition among guys Roy brought in
