The first line is relying on the chemistry of Gordon Bombay and Charlie Conway, along with Mystery, Alaska's Connor Banks's slapshot. Doug Dorsey's injured eye heals well enough to play, and he's teamed with former junior phenom Dean Youngblood and Ned Braden, called up from the Chiefs. The third line is made up of the Hansons, who aren't that great separate but are much better than the sum of its parts. The fourth line of Dean Portman and towering Ogie ogilthorpe, centered by Youngblood's junior nemesis Carl Racki, give the team plenty of toughness.
On defense, former Chief's captain Johnny Upton and Mo Wanchuk join their teammates from the Chiefs. Skank Marden and Jon Biebe from Mystery anchor the second pair. On the third pairing, we add some tougness with Andre "Poodle" Lussier and a PP QB in Jesse Tyler (Mighty Ducks).
In net we have former Chief Denis Lemieux and Youngblood's former junior teammate Heaver.
The coaching staff is judge Walter Burns, assisted by Reg Dunlop and Youngblood's former coach Murray Chadwick. Joe McGrath is the GM, finally given the chance to run a team not teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.
I'd take Fulton Reed over Jesse Tyler, he didn't even make the JV squad. Can't just have one bash brother, it doesn't work.
