In Topic: Completely Healthy Roster?

Today, 10:52 AM

OK, now that we know our starting roster for this Friday, how would you like your lines set up? I am just going with the talk that Larkin may start on the top line with Z, and this is what I'd like to see:


Zetterberg - Larkin - Abdelkader

Nyquist - Richards - Tatar

Jurco - Sheahan - Pulkkinen

Miller - Glendening - Ferraro


Kronwall - Ericsson

Quincey - Green

Smith - Ouellet





...This has nothing to do with not liking Franzen, just what I'd like to see.  I know that Franzen will be in and that means one of Jurco, Pulkkinen or Ferraro will be out.  Although, yesterday on twitter there was some speculation the Glenny would be out and Andy in on the fourth line...I couldn't believe it either!

I agree. It will be curious though, to see if Andersson does get waived, if he will slipped past Babcock's Leafs.  Babcock loved him that is for sure! But, ya, no big loss either way.

True, but once Cleary and Andy get wiaved, now you would be looking into our bottom 6 players in order to keep Dylan. I would like to assume that Dylan would just be the one to go to GR since it makes the most business sense.



Ok, now that Dylan will be here Friday, I am hoping that he chooses a better number to wear. Maybe he chose 71 for a reason, but with camp over, there has to be a few others he can take.  I look at the #22 Meile wore in camp. He was impressive, but I have a hard time believing he will ever make the club permanently and if he comes up once in a blue moon for injuries he can just don an oddball number.  Heck, I am all for Mantha being here soon as well, but let Larkin have the #39 and make Mantha choose another one when he makes the team. I'd suggest #24 for him.  Nothing against the reasons Dylan wore #71, but it just looks weird.  I think he would look great in #22 or his #39. Oh well!

Just real quick, I cannot believe that we didn't lose any of those waived players to anyone else.  You guys told me all summer long that it wouldn't happen and you were right. I was wrong and I apologize... The players that remain that will most likely get waived (Cleary and Andersson) when we are 100% healthy, I really couldn't care if they were lost. I am so happy we didn't lose anyone! I thought Meile played very well and wonder if we'll see him in some spot injury duty at all?

I too do not want to see Jurco or Pulk sit.  You'd have to figure Cleary and Andy would sit, but that still leaves one extra forward. I am so happy and excited that Dylan has made the club, but you're right, I also want to see the other two excel and given the chance. Maybe there will be someone else who will be sitting instead? I guess it's always a possibility...


Going back to my question about trade bait.  I just meant that after you send Cleary and assumedly Andy to waivers, if you want to still keep Dylan here, do you just waive another of you more talented players and lose him for free or do you try to trade and get some return? It's going to be tough.
