can now confirm that neither kovalev or kuba will be available for the 1st round.

ottawa is set for every spot except 3rd line RW.

Regin-Spezza-Alfredsson
Foligno-Fisher-Cheechoo
Michalek-Cullen-?
Ruutu-Kelly-Neil
(Shannon/Donovan/Winchester/Butler/Z. Smith/Daugavins... expect shannon, smith, or donovan to start the series).

Phillips-Volchenkov
Sutton-Karlsson
Campoli-Carkner
(Lee, Cowen, Wiercioch, D. Smith)

Elliott
Leclaire
Brodeur

Thanks to everyone for their contributions so far. We only need 5 more teams to make this complete.

Also, PP lines for Montreal, Ottawa, New Jersey, NYR, Boston, Vancouver, Chicago would be appreciated!

Babs is really hard to predict when it comes to lines, and he's not likely to keep anything in stone, either. However, this is my expectation:

Franzen - Datsyuk - Holmstrom
Filppula - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi
Cleary - Helm - Eaves

Those top two lines have done rather well for the D since the break. Helm and Eaves are quite good enough for a third line. The fourth line is going to be really hard to predict, however. On the one hand, you might want to see Abdelkader over Williams as a Detroit fan. On the other hand, Babs loves that righthanded shot from the point. So you could possibly see:

Miller - Draper - Williams

or

Abdelkader - Draper - Williams
(I doubt Miller sits, he's been a very solid grinder)

or

Abdelkader - Draper - Miller

Personally, I'd much prefer that as a playoff 4th line over Williams, but again, that point shot...

It's also possible with Babs you'll see him go deep at center:

Franzen - Datsyuk - Holmstrom
Cleary - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi
Miller - Filppula - Williams
Draper - Helm- Eaves


Defensive pairings are a lot more predictable:

Lidstrom - Rafalski
Kronwall - Stuart
Ericsson - Lilja

Unless someone on the bottom pairing invites the death stare.

With the Rangers eliminated, we still need the Flyers. Thanks!

So I'll give it a try for PP and PK lines for the Devils. As said above, not 100% sure with Lemaire's line shuffling.

PP1:
Langenbrunner - Parise - Kovalchuk
Elias - Martin

PP2:
Clarkson - Zajac - Rolston
Kovalchuk - Greene

PK Forwards:
Zajac - Langenbrunner
Elias - Parise
Niedermayer - Rolston

PK Defense:
Salvador - Skoula
White - Mottau
