04-05 Thrasher lines?

What do you think the lines and defensive pairings will look like in the 04-05 season? (if there is one ). Will Heatley play with Kovalchuk?

I don't think that your lines are far off. I just don't see Stefan as a second line center. I am still hoping that DW still goes out and signs a center. I was kind of hoping for Rolston. Can play PK, has the wheels to keep up with Kovalchuk, will get 200+ shots and score some goals. Here is what I think.

Kozlov......Savard......Heatley
Kovalchuk..Rolston.....McEachern
Aubin........Stefan......Petrovicky
Brennan....Simon.......Larson
Viger,Lessard

Modry......Sutton
Havelid.....Exelby
Majesky....Tjarnqvist

Nurminen
Lehtonen

I also wouldn't mind seeing DW sign a big forward to go on the second line. I think Deadmarsh, if healthy, could be an interesting option. If your worried about his injury history, tie playing time into his contract and make it really incentive laden.

From your keyboard to DWs eyes, Shameus. I believe a Petro-Stefan-Mac 3rd line would be awesome. Defensively sound, but enough pop to launch counterattacks. The problem is that we don't have any scoring in our system to fill the 2nd line center and wing. Waddell has expressed an interest in a center, let's hope he can find a winger to go with him on his shopping spree

I know that DW would not be able to afford a center and wing more than likely. Especially after shelling out the money it would take to get Rolston. But I thought that Deadmarsh could be a high risk-high reward type of investment. He could be cheap considering how much time he missed the last two seasons, and like I said you could tie in performance and playing time bonuses to a low base salary. I agree with you Rhodes Rage that a Mac-Stefan-Petro third line would be a good third line. Heck, it would be better than most of the second lines the Thrashers have thrown out there in their history. I think that line would provide a spark when needed, be very reponsible defensively, and provide a little offensive punch (I think the three of them could average a little more than 40 pts together, not bad for a third line.) I think droping Aubin to a line with Simon and Larson provides you with a good fourth line who will be very good defensively, very good checkers, and would play smart and not pull any stupid penalties. I know this leaves us without the traditional goon anywhere, but you do have a few guys who will drop (Petro, Savy, Xlb, and if Majesky is dropped to the third defensive pair, why not try to get him to take up fighting a little more?) the gloves if needed.

Kozy--Savard--Heater
Kovy--Stephane--Mcheachern
Vigay--auban--petro
Brennan--Simon--Lessard

the first two lines are obvious.

The third line is fast and can provide 42+ goals as a line

The fourth is a good line. Big physical, and i believe that they can score 25+ goals.
The reason i say this is because they hit anything that moves and it creates alot of open ice for simon to get off a good shot and then lessard and brennan crash the net. It could work

Sutton--modry
Ex--Havlid
Tjarny--majesky

So much for Rolston. Anyone for Nylander or Zhamnov?

I would rather have Nylander, more responsible in defensive end. They both have been around 60 points a year for their careers, so that is a toss up. I also think that money wise the Thrashers would be able to afford a wing as well as Nylander.

Any thoughts on forking over a lot of money and signing Demitra to play center on the second line?

I cannot see DW forking over an offer suitable to Demitra. I expect a 3M/year or less guy.

I concur. Nylander's strength is passing. Put him on a line with Kovalchuk and the results could be awesome. I also agree Demitra's price is out of our range.

Nylander is 32, and go to nhl.com for the stats. He is a consistant point-per-game playmaker who is a tad injury prone.

Kozlov - Aubin - Kovulchuk

Heatley - Savard - Mc Eachern

Vigier- Stefan - Petro

Lessard - Simon - Brennan

------

Modry - Exelby

Sutton - Havelid

Tjarnquist - Majesky


I would like to see DW sign Lindros and put him between Heaters and Captain Thrash

This offensive line up, we'll be picking again at the 10th spot come 2005 Draft! Dump Vigier and Lessard!

Lol

most of you put kovalchuk on a line without kozlov...you guys are forgetting that these two have great chemistry, are both russian, and should be playing together. my lines:

Kozlov - Savard - Kovalchuk
Heatley - Stefan - Mceachern
Vigier - Aubin - Petrovicky
Lessard - Simon - Brennan

Modry - Sutton
Havelid - Exelby
Coburn - Majesky (who needs tjarnqvist???? let Coburn play)

Well, considering that Kovalchuk and Kozlov both play left wing, it makes sense that they would be split up. Kozlov has stated that he's more comfortable at left wing, and has played predominantly on a line with Savard and Heatley.

Nylander has never been a point-per-game player.

Plus, he's not been injury prone. 77, 82, 82, 80 games in four years until breaking his leg just before last season. Those are pretty solid games numbers. And maybe he's not a point per game, but he's around .75 per game, which is still solid. I like his game. He's scrappy, he's a decent faceoff guy (not great, but around 48% or so). I think he could do well under Hartley.

well, even though kozlov and kovachuk are both left wings...if you ask either of them if they'd rather play together or play on separate lines just to stay on LW...believe me, both would rather pick to play together. so kozlov can play RW, its not a big deal. what matters more is that they feed off each other, have chemistry and enjoy playing together

Usually I use that term loosely. He has never been on a really good team, and he has come close to the point-per game mark a number of years. As I recall, he was never given top-line minutes (well, maybe in Washington), and when he is, he can produce good numbers.

He is not really a point per game player per se, but more like a 3 points/4 games player. Either way, he would be a great addition to the Thrashers.

why exactly would the Trashers need Nylander when they have Savard and Stefan??? Savard is better than Nylander...and why would u want to replace stefan with nylander on the 2nd line??? Stefan is much younger, has plenty of potential and moving stefan down to a 3rd line would only hurt his progress. THE Trashers are a young team and they dont need guys like nylander right now...good player, but getting old and they have enough good offensive centers. also,nylander is not a 3rd line center...he is only average on D.

.75 is not bad, but there's a big difference these days between someone who can actually record a point per game and someone who records .75. It was a misleading post so I wanted to clarify.

i think you need to take a closer look at the .75 per game anyway. first of all, most of those points are assists...not goals. he gets 15-20 goals a season, rest is assists. next, he is 32 and he wont get you .75 per game anymore...its all downhill from now on.
