That's the potential I see in each guys for this season. I placed a + near the guys I think got a high chance of reaching it and a - near the 1s I think got less of a chance of reaching it. The 1s with no +/- I believe got as much chance of reaching it or not.
Alot of people see the comin of Cole the 6th who comes fill our top 6 with Pacioretty. I believe we'll see alot of swaps in the top 9 this year. Gionta, Gomez, Plekanec and Cammy are rly the only 1s I see with a ''secure'' spot in the top 6. Starting from there, we got alot of options within Cole, Kostitsyn, Pacioretty, Eller, Desharnais and even Darche! On paper a top 9 like this 1 makes you drool thinking of the chemistry there was with AK-Eller Gomez-Pac and Plek-Cammy.
Cammy - Plekanec - Cole
Pacioretty - Gomez - Gionta
Darche/Desharnais - Eller - AK
But I could see something in the lines of this work
AK and Cole can be swapped but the ATM line worked before. Darche worked well with Gomez and Gio last year. It would be more of a 2nd 2nd line than a 3rd line. Pac/Eller/Cole would be a hard working 2nd line with big bodies up front. The reason I've put Desharnais up there is that I think theres a chance we might see him in a 2nd line scenario this season. Him and Pac is like peanut butter and jelly, its a perfect fit. Add Cole or AK to the mix and you've got a great line. Each players got their way of playing and they fit with different type of players. Cole with a great passer and fast line mates will thrive the most. He needs some1 who can make a solid pass on the tape like Cory Stillman wich is why I'm not to worry about him producing this year even if he joins a new team. Gomez, Plekanec, Desharnais and Eller are all great passers.
