Let's Build Next Years Team - First Line Left Wing

Im sorta ripping off flylines yearly prospect post, and kinda building a twist around it. Were going to vote on the lines for next year. Im going to go position by position, and were going to have a vote for every single player, even the more obvious choices till we fill out an entire roster.

The assumptions here are the team carrying 2 goalies, 1 backup defenseman, and 2 backup forwards. The first few obvious prospects will also be listed in every vote, along with an "other" option. This is if you feel another player not listed is a better choice than any of the other players.

The Roster As It Stands Now:

First Line Left Wing - Scotty Gomez (91.67%) - First Line Right Wing
Second Line Left Wing - Second Line Center - Second Line Right Wing
Third Line Left Wing - Third Line Center - Third Line Right Wing
Fourth Line Left Wing - Fourth Line Center - Fourth Line Right Wing
First Backup Forward
Second Backup Forward


First Pairing Left Defenseman - First Pairing Right Defenseman
Second Pairing Left Defenseman - Second Pairing Right Defenseman
Third Pairing Left Defenseman - Third Pairing Right Defenseman
Backup Defenseman

Starting Goalie
Backup Goalie

I went with Dawes. I think a potential issue is that Nazzy, Goemz, and Zherdev are all puck draggers to some extent. All three players need at least one other player to drive straight ahead, feed on a give and go, or be a finisher.

I don't see why everyone wants a top heavy line-up in terms of talent...then have it decrease significantly on the 2nd line...

I'd put Dawes-Gomez-Zherdev

2nd line... Naslund-Drury-Korpikoski

Are we basing this off of chemistry or is this a kind of depth chart? If chemistry is something to pay attention to, I think Dawes. If it's a depth chart, probably Naslund.

I went with Dawes...

Naslund and Zherdev are right wingers, I believe, and many Euros like playing the off-wing and the other wing is not always as productive. I'd hate to see a guy come here and play out of position.

youre basing it on your opinion. Someone felt Colton Orr would be best served their (probably jokingly) but if you feel Colton Orr, or Greg Moore, or Markus Naslund would be the guy youd like to see in the first line left wing spot, then thats who you should vote for.

Use any metrics you want, but this is an opinion based poll, however you want to base that opinion (chemistry, skill, speed, toughness, etc) is entirely up to you.

See, I thought he was a RW as well, but every site seems to list him as a LW. Same with Zherdev, I thought he was a LW, but every site lists him as a RW.

Isn't Sedin...

a left winger, which would've made Naslund a right winger? Also, Bertuzzi was a left winger and Naslund was on the right, I beleive. It's weird because I watched a lot of Canucks hockey (although not much the last two seasons) and I cannot say definitively where he played (and I'm trying to picture it in my head now).

I went with Dawes. Naslund is probably a bit better but I think we would be better off spreading out the talent among the first 2 lines. Putting Naslund on the first line might leave the 2nd a little weak. Not to mention Dawes played very with Gomez last year, and both are great passers which could mean many, many goals for Zherdev on the right side.

I went with Zherdev, but for the record I think Colton Orr on the top line would be interesting and possible successful but Renney would never have the cojones to try it anyway.

I know he lines up on the right side on the PP, I just assumed that was the case all the time, but nhl.com says otherwise. You are right about Daniel Sedin and Bertuzzi being left wingers.

same reason drury is in this poll even though hes a center.

You can put guys out of position, assuming they have played the position before. Zherdev can play both wings, Naslund, from what i understand, has played RW, but is much more comfortable at LW, Drury can play both center and wing, as can Dubinsky (but hes probably better off at center), etc, etc, etc.

Having too many choices is much better than not having enough choices.
