GM Game #3 Playoff Rosters

Put your playoff rosters in here and any fancy crap to persuade GMs to vote your team higher/lower.

--------------------



The Bruins have added two quality top 4 defenseman. Chara-Phaneuf is one of the most powerful pairings in the league in all physical, offensive, and defensive categories. Dennis Wideman, who had always fared well with a good partner, now has one in Joe Corvo. Ray Whitney will take the spot of a veteran leader up front who can still play, and the return of Lucic will complete a solid first line. Not to mention, the Bruins have likely one of the best 1-2-3 down the middle in the league. A defensive team with two solid goalies and now a good offense, will be a team that will go very far in the playoffs.

Currently sitting 4th in the Western Conference and have added Alex Kovalev, Drew Stafford, and Alexandre Picard. That's 39-72-111 coming in while Peter Mueller the only roster asset we lost. Mueller was on pace for 2-18-20. That's a +37 goals and +54 assists over the course of a season. And Kovalev is back with Robert Lang, who has centered Alex successfully for several years. Stafford joins that line as well giving us a top-six of Kovalev, Doan, Stafford, Lang, Upshall and Lombardi.

Our checking line of Prucha-Hanzal-Vrbata remains together, as does our shutdown and PK specialists in Korpikoski, Fiddler and Winnik. Pyatt floats between the four lines adding strong two-way replay and a rediscovered scoring touch.

That additional offensive firepower, along wth one of the league's best defenses, top-10 in penalty-killing, and top 5 in goals allowed will be enough to get us deep into the playoffs by holding on to 2nd in the Pacific at worst, and overtaking the Sharks for 1st at best.

In the off-season we will be looking for a top-line center either through trade or free agency. With three 1st round picks in this draft we like our position to make that move.

Iginla-Roy-Sturm
Bourque-Langkow-Dawes
Glencross-Nystrom-Sjostrom
Boyd-Conroy-McGrattan
Prust

Pairings:
Bouwmeester-Sarich
Regehr-Morris
Giordano-Exelby
Pardy

Kiprusoff
McLelland


In Calgary, the only thing that was missing for a Deep Cup run was scoring. That was added with the Additions of Sturm and Roy, a shooter and a true Playmaking C. This makes a true#1 line. Roy takes the role of the #1C from Jokinen, who was not doing the job and was projected to finish with a 50pt season. Whereas Roy, who was playing with wingers who pale in comparison to Iggy and Sturm was set for a 60pt season.

This opens up the 2nd line of Bourque-Langkow-Dawes for the secondary checkers and should give them the extra time needed to truly produce the secondary scoring required of a cup champ.

The Defence, while losing Phaneuf, gained Morris and Exelby. The current Defence still boasts serious depth with Olympic hopefuls Boumeeester and Regehr. Sarich provides the defence needed to allow Boumeester to play to his strenghts. Morris adds a physical presence and good mobility with a great 1st pass to the 2nd pairing and Exelby provides the hard edge missing on the 3rd pairing all season.

Our PP has improved with the addition to the new top 6 fwds and our PK has been upgraded as our 1st and 2nd wave are more balanced.

And as always we still have the perennial Vezina finalist Kiprusoff between the pipes.


All this and there was no loss of draft pics (1st already gone in Jokinen deal to PHX) or any of our top prospects. Adding to our Defensive depth was the Addition of Bodnarchuck and the signing to an ELC of our#1 draft pick in 2009 Tim Erixon.

We are also set to graduate Aulie, Pelech, Backlund and Possibly Nimisz and Erixon next season making a potent defence and offence even deeper and poised for many more years of Cup contention, even if the Cap drops by as much as 3million$ next year.

HURRICANES TRADE-DEADLINE RECAP

SUBTRACTIONS: Drayson Bowman (F-Traded-20), Ray Whitney (F-Traded-37), Joe Corvo (D-Traded-32), Scott Walker (F-Traded-36), Stephane Yelle (F-Traded-35), Aaron Ward (D-Waived-36), 1st 2010 (CAR).

ADDITIONS: Brad Staubitz (F-Prospect-25), Brian Lee (D-NHL-22), Michael Ryder (F-NHL-29), Matt Hunwick (D-NHL-24), Peter Mueller (F-NHL-21), Logan Couture (F-Prospect-20), Andre Petersson (F-Prospect-19), Patrick Wiercioch (D-Prospect-19), Alex Tanguay (F-NHL-30), 1st 2010 (OTT), 2nd 2010 (BOS), 3rd 2010 (SJ).

We feel that we have improved our team in the present and the futre during this trading period. We dealt off age-ing forwards in Ray Whitney, Scott Walker and Stephane Yelle while replacing them with much younger forwards in Alex Tanguay, Peter Mueller and Michael Ryder. On defence we lost Aaron Ward and Joe Corvo but gained Brian Lee and Matt Hunwick - two young D with great top-4 potential. We did all of this while only subtracting forward Drayson Bowman (potential top-6) and our 1st round pick 2010 from our prospect pool while we added a whole lot more to it in forwards Logan Couture (potential top-6), Andre Petersson (potential top-6), Brad Staubitz (bottom-6), defenceman Patrick Wiercioch (potential top-4), 1st round pick 2010 (OTT), 2nd round pick 2010 (BOS) and a 3rd round pick 2010 (SJ). All in all we feel this deadline was a HUGE success for the Carolina Hurricanes organization and we now feel as though we are a top-10 team in our conference.
The hype is back in Raleigh!

---------------------------------------------

2009/10 Carolina Hurricanes Current Line-up (Age in brackets)

Forwards

Alex Tanguay (30) - Eric Staal (25) - Michael Ryder (29)
Tuomo Ruutu (26) - Matt Cullen (33) - Peter Mueller (21)
Jussi Jokinen (26) - Brandon Sutter (20) - Sergei Samsonov (31)
Erik Cole (31) - Rod Brind'Amour (39) - Tom Kostopoulos (30)
X - Chad LaRose (27)

Defence

Joni Pitkanen (26) - Tim Gleason (26)
Matt Hunwick (24) - Brian Lee (22)
Niclas Wallin (34)/Brett Carson (24) - Andrew Alberts (28)
X - Niclas Wallin (34)/Brett Carson (24)

Goalies

Cam Ward (25)
Manny Legace (36)

ROSTER ANALYSIS

Up Front:
First Line - With newly acquired Alex Tanguay (capable of 50+ assists), playing with Eric Staal (power forward and potential 100+pt. player) and Michael Ryder (capable of 30+ goals) this line will be counted on to put points up on the board.
Second Line - Veteran Matt Cullen (40+ points), newly acquired Peter Mueller (former first-round pick that has already scored 50+ points) and Tuomo Ruutu (gritty forward that is starting to breakout) form a very good secondary to the first line and will also be counted on for points.
Third Line - 20 year-old Brandon Sutter centers shootout master Jussi Jokinen and veteran Sergei Samsonov - this line will be counted on for a solid two-way game.
Fourth Line - A veteran line with our experienced captain Rod Brind'Amour playing with two powerforwards in Erik Cole and Tom Kostopoulos. This line will be counted on for hard nosed defensive hockey and will also be capable of adding energy and leadership to a very young team.

Manning the Blue-line:
First Pairing - An offensive player in Joni Pitkanen plays with hard-nosed defender Tim Gleason. This pairing will be expected to log big minutes.
Second Pairing - Two newly acquired young defenders in Brian Lee and Matt Hunwick will look to make an impression on new GM Haligonian. Lee provides an offensive touch while Hunwick is great in his own end. This pairing should be capable of solid two-way hockey.
Third Pairing - Big-bodied Andrew Alberts plays along side youngster Brett Carson/veteran Nic Wallin. Who ever is paired with Alberts will be counted on for great defensive hockey.

In Goal:
Starting Goaltender - Stanley Cup winner Cam Ward will be counted on to bail-out a young defence from time to time and provide solid goaltending down the stretch.
Back-up Goaltender - 36 year-old Manny Legace provides solid insurance in net as he was a starter in the league for a few years.

As of right now, only Minnesota, St. Louis, Anaheim, Columbus, and Edmonton have fewer points than Dallas. While I hope the Stars aren't the worst team in the Conference, I'm pretty sure St. Louis, Anaheim, and Columbus will all pass Dallas easily in the 2nd half of the season.

So that leaves Edmonton and Minnesota.

Edmonton

Key Additions: Alexander Frolov, Jarret Stoll, Jack Johnson, Johnny Oduya, Josh Harding, James Sheppard

Key Losses: Lubomir Visnovsky, Andrew Cogliano, Tom Gilbert, Robert Nilsson, Jeff Deslauriers

Dallas has 11 more points than the Oil right now. I personally don't believe these moves will allow Edmonton to make up the difference, but I guess I couldn't fault you for believing they will. I imagine Edmonton would have a stronger finish than Dallas, but like I said, I just don't know if they can make up the difference.

Minnesota

Key Additions: Jeff Deslauriers, Rob Schemp

Key Loss: Josh Harding, James Sheppard, Guillaume Latendresse, Owen Nolan

The Wild and Stars have the same points (Dallas has 1 game in hand). I think Dallas will have a better end to their season because they only traded away 2 key veterans, and the Stars have a very strong forward group.

The Devils have one of the most balanced corps of forwards in the league. With three scoring lines, each one capable of playing a checking role as well as putting up points, the Devils have a nice combination of offensive capability and solid defense from every line. Combine that with the league's premiere checking unit with Pandolfo, a rejuvenated Niedermayer and under appreciated wingman Dean McAmmond, these units are cup-worthy.

Combine that with a legitimate #1 defenseman in Paul Martin, an offensive defenseman who was having a Norris-worthy season in Lubo Visnovsky, a surprising Andy Greene who's been a capable #2 all season long, and three physical shutdown guys with the reliable Bryce Salvador, Colin White, and Mark Fraser, and the Devils have a defense that is once again amongst the league's elite on paper and not just statistically.

And Brodeur is Brodeur.

Luongo
Raycroft


Our top 6 is one of the best ES lines in the league with both Sedins having a breakout season, and Burrows being the perfect fit on the line. The 2nd line is in the middle of a cinderella season with Raymond evolving into a goal scoring machine. The grit and passing of Kesler, and the speed and puck handling of Grabner make for a 2nd line that can burn you. With the addition of Matt Stajan we have a potent 3rd line that can put in goals, play a chippy game and importantly play important defensive minutes. Our 4th line doesn't have name recognition going for it but they've proven this season they can move the puck, score some goals and most important use their hard forechecking style to wear down the opposing team.

Our blueline is a fantastic fit. With defensive players complimenting the puckmovers. Our defense has a solid vet who's been keeping his legs fresh in the AHL for cap reasons in Brad Lukowich. But with improved play from Shane O'Brien and Alex Edler, and a huge season from Christian Ehrhoff, it's likely they'll prove to be capable of shutting down the other team.

Most importantly.
Roberto Luongo. Playing lights out this season after a rough October.

Craig Anderson
Peter Budaj

The Avalanche managed to add a fantastic young winger in Michael Frolik. The other offensive players the Avs added matched the Avalanche image, hard working two-way forwards that don't give up.

On defense the Avs targeted their biggest weakness, a lack of size and defensive defensemen. By adding the highly underrated Matt Greene and John Erskine these weaknesses have become strengths, while maintaining our strong puck moving core by keeping breakout players Ryan Wilson and Kyle Cumiskey as well as all-around defender Kyle Quincey.

In net Anderson has shown his ability to steal games, and Budaj has shown that he may very well be the leagues best backup.

So, the Avs have a young and rather untested offense, but what they lack in experience they make up in hard work and two-way play. They also aren't a small bunch, nor do they lack talent, this is an offensive group to be reckoned with.

On defense the Avs surely will not be fun to play against with playoff veteran Adam Foote leading the charge. They have shutdown defenders in Hannan, Erskine, Greene and the already mentioned Foote. Expect some bruises.

The wild were in a sell mode at the deadline. Unfortunatly with two of out top players out for the rest of the concussions (Burns & Bouchard) we felt we had no choice but to be sellers. We feel our team did not get that much weaker with only losing depth players such as Nolan and Harding. We know are not a powerhouse, but hopefully can squeak into a playoff spot

Green - Poti
Liles - Schultz
Morrison - Pothier
Jurcina

Varlamov

As much as other teams in the conference have improved the Caps still deserve to win the division and have a top 2 spot in the conference.

Any team with Ovy, Semin and Backstrom will put up points, but with a supporting cast with guys like Flash, Fehr, Laich and Semin this team now has secondary scoring. Add in some of the best role players in the game in Steckel, Bradley and Clark and you have a recipe for success.

the defence is improved with the addition of JM Liles. This unit might look weak on paper, but with the emergence of Tom Poti as a two-way threat and the shutdown ability of Morrison, Jurcina and Shultz other teams will need to be on their A game.

This team will go as far as their goaltending will take them, and with the talented yet enigmatic tandem is concerned, it's all the way to the finals.
