Lines assuming no moves.

After sitting in my office the last 4 hours, I came up with lines that I believe spread the depth we have most efficiently.


Kulemin Tavares Strome

Nelson Grabovski Okposo

Lee Nielsen Bailey

Martin Cizikas Clutterbuck

Lee - Tavares - KO
Nelson - Nielsen - Strome
Kulemin - Grabovski - Bailey
MM - CC - CC

Went back and forth with KO and Strome but I think I'd rather have KO on the first line.

This is what should have been last years starting lineup, but Pulock got hurt, and the great Cory Conacher of SC Bern, undeservedly was given a spot...on the TOP line...by the idiot behind the bench...

Swap Petrov for Petrov, and take out Petrov and replace with Petrov, and I like this.

I like these lines. I think JT and Okposo should be separated. If Okposo is going to be re-signed for the money he wants (most likely north of 7 mill). He MUST produce without Tavares and drive the offense on a different line.


Also, do we keep 2 forwards as healthy scratches (grabner, petrov?) or 2 dmen (strait, mayfield?)

Unfortunately, I don't see the Isles cutting Strait. However, If Grabner is gone by the time game 1 comes around, I wouldn't be surprised if Petrov/Indrasiss, Strait, and Mayfield were our healthy scratches. Although I'm not sure how I feel about Mayfield sitting in the press box...

Mayfield forces his way in to bottom pair from the first game.
Pulock is the bubble boy with " see ya real soon" m . O. U . S .e. Switching off

I think the lines will depend on how Petrov looks to be honest.

If Petrov looks like he could play with this team:
Bailey-Tavares-Okposo
Lee-Nelson-Strome
Petrov-Grabovski-Kulemin
Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck
Grabner/Nielson (I'd assume both get traded rather then rot)

Leddy-Boychuk
de Haan-Hamonic
Hickey/Mayfield-Pulock


If Petrov looks like he needs a longer adjustment period or is not going to work out:
Lee-Tavares-Okposo
Bailey-Nelson-Strome
Grabovski-Nielsen-Kulemin
Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck
Grabner

Leddy-Boychuk
de Haan-Hamonic
Hickey/Mayfield-Pulock

People still putting Grabvoski on the wing??? He's the best face-off guy on the team.

I wish he would play center, but you know Cappy isn't going to do it.

That looks about right. They kind of hinted at this lineup already through Staple. Maybe Lee moving up and Lee moving down first 2 lines.

Grabovski also drives possession, and does it better as a center because he has the puck more often and longer at center.

My prediction was based on what Cappy will do not what I would do.

I remember Lee Tavares Bailey worked out well for a portion of the season. However I'd want to give Tavares more to work with. But that second line would be nasty. Unfortunately it appears the team likes Nelson at center for some reason and strome at rw. Maybe how well Nelson did at wing for team USA will make cappy move him to wing. He could be great left wing for Tavares

I think all three of the lines would be extremely potent. Tavares played his best hockey with Lee and Bailey, to me anyway. The second line is really well balanced and compliments each other. Think they'd throw fits for the opposition defense. The third line would be great at shutting down the opposition and they'd be real good at possession.

It's a very versatile lineup though, so there are a lot of things that could be done depending on how the coach wants the team to play.
