I still say they need to acquire a 1/2 top defenseman if they want to keep their playoff streak alive.  They have to get someone who is just as good or better than Kronwall. It'll cost them Franzine or Filppula, but it is very, VERY necessary!

Hell, at least I will be able to see Parise get Kronwalled this season! Watch out momma's boy, don't put your head down!

I'd rather we never signed Sammy and gave Gus a real look, but it is what it is... I wouldn't want him toiling away on the bottom 6, or on the bench, I'd rather him get more quality minutes in GR and called up when there are injuries...<br />
<br />
Also, that D looks ugly :(<br />
<br />
EDIT- just realized I doubled up Helm originally</p></blockquote>

I think this is the most sensible/realistic set. I agree about Nyquist, too. He's doing really well in GR and would benefit from more minutes.

I can't believe you guys would reunite Datsyuk with Franzen and Bertuzzi.  That line was lazy and underwhelming last season.  

I just don't think Babcock is going to put Nyquist on the first line, Sammy is not a first line guy maybe Cleary but he has to be a lot better than last year.

Haha, Ericsson up front, I like it.

 

Filppula can't carry the second line.  He's good as a complementary player to Zetterberg or Datsyuk.

 

I think Nyquist has to get a shot with one of the top lines, and considering Brunner's play so far with Zetterberg, I think they stay together.  Nyquist with Datsyuk.  Franzen and Filppula will fill the other top-6 spots.  Helm centers Samuelsson (yuck) and Cleary, Abdelkader gets a combo of Miller, Tootoo, and Bertuzzi.  Mursak is the 14th forward unless they waive him.  No room for Emmerton, Tatar, or Andersson.  Eaves still on IR.

 

They can either run with 6 D until Colaiacovo is healthy, call up Almquist or Lashoff until then, or try and find a free agent a la Janik who can fill in temporarily.

Barring injuries Gustav Nyquist is probably not going to be playing regularly in the top six on this team this season. Hate to break it to you fellas.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

And being waiver eligible yet, it wouldn't shock me at all if he was kept in GR.

 

Not that I endorse it, but I wouldn't be too surprised by something like this up front if Kenny doesn't somehow pull off a deal that sends some forwards out before the start of the season:

 

Mule-Dats-Bert/Sammy

Brunner-Hank-Flip

Cleary-Helm-Bert/Sammy

Tootoo-Abby-Miller/Mursak/THE Cory F'n Emmerton

 

On the back end, I personally wouldn't mind seeing something like this...

 

Kronner-Smith

Ericsson-White

Quincey-Carlo/Kindl

There will be one or two injuries at all times, so nyquist should get some time.

I don't see why Nyquist couldn't be top 6? Babcock already had him in the top 6 last season and unfortunately had to move him to the third line. Nyquist is a player that needs to play with bigger players, unfortunately his size is what made him go to the third line last year. He simply couldn't handle going against other teams top lines and top d pairings. He added some strength and handled himself nicely from what i've seen this season with GRR. I think he'll be given the shot at top 6 originally, along with Brunner. Where the hell did everyone get Brunnstrom from? Didn't he elect to go play in Europe? Colo may or may not be ready for the season, as he got injured recently. That'll lead to Kindl playing. Emdog will not crack the lineup this year due to just too many better players infront of him in the depth chart, sorry Axe or Cory as we like to say. Realistically, I like number9's lines. Filp and Pasha NEED to spend time together, they have AMAZING chemistry and are a deadly threat as a duo. Brunner and Zett already established chemistry and should start the season together. Add nyquist and give him the early chance to prove he can handle going against other top 6 players. This would give that line two good playmakers in zett and nyquist, with a deadly shot in brunner (zetts aint bad either). Third line would have helmer bringing the speed, a healthy cleary to bring the veteran sense along with good work ethic (don't even say it, the guys been working on a tore up knee) and sammy to miss shots and throw off our opponents. I love the idea of the fourth line just buckling down and grinding it out against other teams 3/4th line. Tootoo, big bert, and abby... you would get annoyed playing against that line. Our defense makes me want to cringe, but in all honesty I think we'll do OKAY this season. I really think we'll see some improvements again with big rig. Ground breaking? No. But it'll certainly help. He'll need to use his body more, but I almost sense that more physicality will be apart of the wings system these upcoming years. We don't have #5, but we have to look at his play and say it isn't going to hurt as much as we really think it may. We didn't lose a prime Lidstrom, we lost one that was declining in play. Was his declining in play still better than the majority of defensemen that lace up? Absolutely, but he was Lidstrom. Quincey came into our system half way through a system while we were on a big winning streak. He has no excuses this year, as he will be attending training camp and up to speed with the systems in place. Brendan smith we HAVE to see mistakes, but they'll expand and make him develop more. He is going to take those chances, and he will take chances when he certainly shouldn't. They'll result in turnovers, and possibly burn us a time or two. Colo is a big question mark, but it's an improvement over kindl. Okay, im done now.
