It's pretty much exactly what I expect. And depending on the #2 defenseman, I don't think it's going to be that bad.

Ryan - Getzlaf - Perry
Blake - Koivu - Selanne
Sexton - Marchant - Lupul
Bodie - Chipchura - Parros

Visnovsky - Sbisa
Lydman - Fowler
Festerling - Brookbank

Fowler and Sbisa shouldn't both make the team (unless they both have someting way over the hills in training camp. I could see Fowler getting a look early in the season, and then getting sent to juniors.

With our current group of forwards (+Ryan and Selanne) those are the lines I want to see with one minor change. I want Troy Bodie in there, although I'm not sure how he would work out on the left side. But it doesn't really matter, in the end the 4th line wingers (Parros, Voros, Carter, Bodie) will be decided through preseason.

Pretty close unless all hell breaks loose.
Lupul likely won't be ready.
Mikk and Fester will factor.
Sexton may have a role (Lup) .
Carter still in limbo.
Fowler to Juniors (pre, 4+ NHL).
D-man addition is wildcard.
Not likely to max cap.

Spot on. thanks for not messing with the 2nd line...basically 3 scoring lines. Lupes and Beleskey will be interesting, god I hope Todd doesn't **** that line up.

I don't know much about Voros except that he's not a good fighter, I would think Bodie would play over him because of his pk ability...

Fowler has an 80% chance of making the team now...lol

What about Bodie? I'd take him over Voros. And I would prefer Marchant to be on the fourth line, but he will most likely be on the third. Nicely done.

I think your pretty close on what the lines will be, but I despise that defense. I can't stand the fact that Murray is considering just handing Sbisa a top 4 spot like he did last year when it failed so miserably. If it fails AGAIN, and we miss the playoffs, he should be fired with out question imo. Personally I think the lines will have to be adjusted because that 3rd line will not score enough to be considered a 3rd scoring line. If BKS struggles I can see RC changing it quickly, moving Lupul to top line, Ryan to 2nd line, and Blake to 3rd line. It doesn't create a 3rd scoring line any better but it makes the first two lines better.

Who are you trading? You have Lupul, Blake and Ryan all there.

I don't see this team ever doing very much with Visnovsky as the #1 guy. He's a very good player, but I don't think he should be the ace on the blueline.

Looking back I really wish the Ducks traded for Phaneuf. He's a ****** and overrated, but he's still very good. Better than Visnovsky.

I would rather have Lubo who played well for us and Oiler and Kings fans raved about over Celine.

I'm not a big fan of Phaneuf at all. He makes too many mistakes and has been regressing for a while.

pretty dead on as to what I think we will be going into the season with. For me, Fowler should get his 9 game trial, and be returned to juniors, barring a studly performance, which would put Mikk/Festy/Savret on the third pair. One move i would love to see Murray make is sign Eric Belanger to center the third line. Much better offensively than Marchant, and good defensively. I think that would give us the center depth to run 3 scoring lines.

Me thinks with that defense Selšnne wont be in the lineup (or the #2 has to be a kick ass defender) and I just don't see Fowler making the team...no use to play him with low minutes with Brookbank.

Lupul - Getzlaf - Perry
Blake - Koivu - Selanne
Marchant - Chipchura - Bodie
Beleskey - Carter - Parros
Voros

Visnovsky / X
Lydman - Sbisa
Brookbank - Mikkelson
Festerling

X = Stud young Dman that Ryan or Ryan+ is traded for.

I know, I know, unlikely that Ryan goes anywhere

I like the idea of keeping the Marchant/Chipchura/Bodie line together again this year. I feel bad for Beleskey getting stuck on the 4th line then, but if anyone gets injured he can slide right up into the Top-6 and maybe get 2nd PP unit time.

I think Bonino makes the team and slots in on the third line.

The Ducks could roll three scoring lines if they sign Kariya.

Beleskey - Getzlaf - Perry
Blake - Ryan - Lupul
Kariya - Koivu - Selanne
Voros - Chipchura - Parros
