People said that about the Hawks after their first cup. Remember big bad Dustin?

Keeping nyquist over tatar would be the wrong choice, unless the opposing team prefers Thomas. For some reason though I think Holland rates nyquist higher, even though he plays softer.

Vanek - Larkin - Abs

Z - Neilson - Tatar

Nyquist - Helm - Sheahan

AA - Glendening - Ott

Miller/Juro/Pulk

Obviously way to much going on here. First off AA shouldn't be playing on the fourth line but you cant have anyone on the third line swap positions because their salary would say too much for 4th line minutes, that's dilemma one. Dilemma 2 is the problem with lack of youth, you say we wanna convert into a more youthful line up but having AA and/or Mantha playing on the bottom 6 probably doesn't fair well for them all together and theres simply no room for Mantha anyway, and AA for that matter. Dilemma 3 is the fact your continously sitting the likes of Jurco and Pulks which won't increase their trade value or production in their development in anyway.

Now as much as this is irelevent and completely just a hunch I have a funny feeling that Larkin and Vanek are going to draw a special connection. I can only hope for the teams sake but I hope they have a chance at some point to build some chemistry, and that's why I have them slotted together. Nielson and Z together though don't give me much to smile about and honestly at the rate Z falls half way through the season I'd personally have him play on the 3rd line. Again though waaaay too much going on even if ya want to try and establish competition. I hear that excuse every year and I really haven't seen it pan out that often, at least to my knowledge. I also remember Blash and Kenny stating how the players need to know and WANT to know what exactly their role is on this team, all I see here are more question marks.... the only stiring the pot kenny claimed to do is the same stir I've seen the last 5 years, signing vets in hope for a different result, and the same taste is getting old. Trades are evident, unless maybe your the current GM...

In Topic: Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

I like Helm but ever since his leg got screwed he doesn't seem.to be the tenacious f**k I loved. In any case what's all that changes are coming bullcrap. We replaced Dat's with a worse veteran (no offense Neilson but your no magic man) the only change has been for worse
Gotta wait all summer to hope for a good trade

In Topic: Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Sign Martin....let Helm walk (hurts me)...trade for Duchene (overpay but change is needed, and so is a center) and I'll be OK. The defense is another issue entirely but I feel a young franchise center is top priority
Larkin can be that but help is always welcomed.
