Now with Koivu signed, we currently have 14 forwards who could take the 12 forward spots.

Koivu
Ryan
Getzlaf
Perry
Selanne
Lupul
Brown
Christensen
Nokelainen
Marchant
Miller
Parros
Ebbett
Carter

How would you build the Ducks forward lines with those names?

Ryan/Lupul - Getzlaf - Perry
Lupul/Ryan - Koivu - Selanne

those makes sense for our top six, if you don't want to spread out the scoring even more and maybe put Lupul on the 3rd. I guess my bottom six would be:

Christensen - Ebbett - Carter
Nokelainen - Marchant - Brown

If EC steps up his game a notch, it would also be possible switching him with Lupul, letting Lupes play his natural RW position and let Carter play the LW. But that is if EC can find back to his game he once had in Pittsburgh.

Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry
Selanne-Koivu-Lupul
Miller-Ebbett-Nokelainen
Carter-Marchant-Brown
Parros-Christensen

Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry was dominant in the playoffs. I think Carlyle should keep them together.

Trade Ebbett, Miller & Christensen for whatever they can get, sign a physical vet grinder and let Bodie, Beleskey and MacMillan fight for the remaining 4th line spot.

Ryan-Getzy-Perry
Lupul-Koivu-Teemu
Vet-Marchant-Brown
X-Carter-Parros

That was kind of what I suggested if EC could step up his game a notch. Parros needs to step up too in order to make the team, he just wasn't the same since getting his new paycheck.

2 scoring lines:

Lupul - Getzlaf - Perry
Ryan - Koivu - Selanne
Miller - Marchant - Nokia
Brown - Carter - Parros

3 scoring lines:

Lupul - Getzlaf - Perry
Ryan - Koivu - Selanne

Trading Ebbett and Christensen doesn't make much sense... EC just re-signed and Ebbett is cheap as ****. Both are cheap and both have offensive upside. I'd be all for getting rid of Miller though, doesn't have any offensive skill and isn't effective in his role as a checking winger because of his small stature.

I'm utterly curious - can you see your abundance of young bottom-6 forwards returning a good veteran Dman to bolster the defense, or do you see any UFA still on the market more fitting?

Lupul - Getz - Perry (Lupul should score 30 goals here)
Ryan - Koivu - Teemu (Ryan adds some size and skill)
Brown - Carter - Moen/Kostopolous/Pettinger/Bodie (fast hard hitting checking line)
Bodie or Nok/Marchant/Parros (preserving Marchant for down the stretch)

I expect Murph to trade for a top 4 defenseman.

I'd like to go with the option line-up. If we need offense, we go with:


Perry-Getzlaf-Lupul
Ryan-Koivu-Selanne
Miller/UFA-Marchant-Nokelainen
Ebbett-Carter-Christensen


And if we need a more agitating line-up, we go with:


Perry-Getzlaf-Lupul
Ryan-Koivu-Selanne
Miller/UFA-Marchant-Nokelainen
Brown-Carter-Parros

I was thinking of something similar

Perry-Getzlaf-Lupul/Ryan - scoring line 1
Lupul/Ryan-Koivu-Selanne - scoring line 2
Brown-Marchant-Nokelainen - checking/energy line

Ebbett-Carter-Christensen/Parros - 3rd scoring line

Miller definitely not in the lineup, but what about guys like Bodie/Belesky.

Defensively I think Niedermayer/Wiz go against other team's top lines.

Whitney will have juggling teamates ala pronger last year. Sometimes we'll want a defensive minded guy out there, sometimes developing a young guy like Sbisa/Mikkelson.

The 3rd pairing will be slop.

Ducks are looking good. A line of Lupul, Koivu ,Selanne on the 2nd really puts them in contention.

I was pretty surprised with some of their deadline pickups

great job building the team

Ebbett and christensen should never be on the ice together. To be honest, I don't see a roster spot for Ebbett on the big club. Christensen will most likely be a fourth line player who specializes on the 2nd pp unit and shootouts.

My lineup:

Ryan/lupul-getz-perry
Ryan/lupul-koivu-teemu
Carter/noke-marchant-brown
Christensen/bodie-noke/carter-parros

We could also go with an all-international top 9(somewhat stolen from ALLDUCKS):


Perry-Getzlaf-Lupul
Carter-Marchant-Ryan
Nokelainen-Koivu-Selanne

Carlyle has gone with three scoring lines before (when he had the personnel), and he loves the player pairs. Getzlaf/Perry obviously, and he's had success with Lupul/Marchant in the past.

()-Getzlaf-Perry
()-Koivu-Selanne
()-Marchant-Lupul

Ryan can float as Carlyle sees fit as the new Kunitz "line jumpstarter", and we have passable options in guys like Carter, Belesky (a true LW), and maybe Miller or Bodie to round that out. Then the energy line can be just what it is. Every line has the ability to bury the weaknesses of weak link guys while keeping the attack rolling and maintaining chemistry even while Carlyle goes nuts with the 3rd guy.

Honestly I don't see how Ebbett fits on this team anymore. Considering he's still on a two-way deal he can go to the minors or be traded. Losing Robbie means we need to have Miller in a checking role. He was terrific during the playoffs. Carter is an enigma. He's not really a center, not really an offensive player. He's good in a checking role but he doesn't seem to like it. I figure he'll be in the lineup but he's all over the place in my mind.

But one things for sure. We're done with signing forwards. We have no room for any more.

Well if we are gonna be a little creative... maybe this will work:

Lupul - Getzlaf - Perry
Ebbett - Koivu - Selanne
Christensen/Carter - Carter/Christensen - Ryan
Brown - Marchant - Nokelainen/Parros

Getzlaf, Koivu and Ryan can all carry their own line. Both Getzlaf and Ryan have proven they can make their linemates better, maybe it would help both Lupul and EC. Koivu maybe doesn't make his linemates much better, but he has Selanne. Ebbett, EC and Lupul who on paper are our worst forwards defensively, would be on seperate lines, which also should be a good thing.

And if we can't get another top 4 defenseman... Maybe Getzlaf can go back playing D on the PP.

PP1
Selanne - Koivu - Perry
Getzlaf - Niedermayer

PP2
Lupul - Christensen - Ryan
Wisniewski - Whitney

would that be so bad?

Agreed. I'd like Murray to add more grit with someone like Nichol. But it's not going to happen.

I like this idea a lot, I'd like to see Carter given a chance on one of those wings
