In Topic: Depth chart for RW/Griffins

I'd rather see Richards center the third line. Give the time Sheahan and see if he can benefit from an increased role. 


As far as the D pairings go, I'm really torn. Green was pretty much delegated to a third-pairing role for the Caps, but given our depth, he's going to fill a second-pairing role. I'd love to see Kronwall-Dekeyser as the first pairing, but you'd be leaving a lot of defensive responsibility on the table with pairings like Ericsson/Smith - Green.

This is by far the worst UFA class in a while. Everyone's going to get overpaid. This is a year that most teams should be conservative with signings, but someone will take a chance. I'll be fine if that isn't us.

Imagine a Wings team loaded with cheap young talented players a few years down the road, but too hamstrung with Weiss and Green type contracts to make constructive additions and make a cup run.

This. Look at how Weiss gets killed here. Living close to the DC market, Green is routinely killed here by fans for his defensive lapses. He's going to get 7mil+ for 5 years at least. I'm quite alright seeing what the young defensemen in the system have to offer.

Something like that if Larkin gets a chance while datsyuk is out..? Idk if he will but I wouldn't be opposed. Our line up could benefit a lot from a Joel ward type signing. But I'd only want him for two years probably and it's looking like he wants four. Either way, I hope pav makes a full recovery asap. He's our best defenseman.

As much as I'm a fan of this, it doesn't factor in Andy, or Weiss, or Franzen (if he's back). I know Andy can be easily waived, but we're already at a logjam of forwards without Dats coming back. Hope I'm wrong here, but Larkin may have to start in GR regardless.

This for sure keeps Weiss around, which is fine; they can buy him out next year if he has another year like last year with less of an affect on the cap.

Sheahan will most likely take the 2C spot again unless Weiss has a phenomenal camp, but like others, I'm hoping this gives Larkin a shot coming out of camp.

Can you imagine a Helm-Larkin-Pulks/Jurco third line?
