theres just no room and pretty sure they would give that spot to holmstrom over knuble.
breaking it down.
dats, z, franzen, filppula are 4 for sure of top 6
nyquist, brunner (babs said awhile ago he will start in top 6 for what its worth), bert, sammy, cleary could all be in top 6 or bottom 6... on bubble
helm, abs (if re-signed), miller, eaves, mursak, emmerton, tootoo + 3 of the 5 bubble players would be a whopping 10 players for 6 positions.
lines id prefer to start
nyquist datsyuk brunner
filppula zetterberg franzen
cleary helm sammy
bert abs tootoo / miller / eaves / mursak / emmerton
first line is uber talented... maybe wont work long term but if they click, look out. i feel with the contract tootoo signed (1.9 mill) that he will be in the line-up more often then not... if we intend on keeping "everyone", nyquist and brunner could be sent down which to me would be nonsense as i feel they are two of our more talented forwards at this point but given their 2way contracts.. it is possible.
say we keep what we have and cant make any moves
cleary datsyuk sammy
filp zberg franzen
bert helm eaves
miller abs tootoo emmerton / mursak
22 players total... could add a depth defensemen as well to round it out
no matter how you slice it... knuble doesnt fit
