Check out that Kuzma article, Kassian has cut a lot of weight and has impressed Wolves coaches. He's got play making ability and agility surprising for a big guy.

Wolves aim to keep winning ways with new staff, players


The AHL is first and foremost a developmental league. It often forces its teams to deal with attrition, which can hurt their chances of winning.
But the Wolves never have used that as an excuse, seamlessly combining the directive of development with a dedication to winning. The Wolves never have had a losing season.

Returning a core of players from a team that lost in the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs, the Wolves don’t expect anything less than a championship in 2012-13.

“Obviously we weren’t happy with the way things ended [last season],” Wolves veteran forward Darren Haydar said. “That’s Chicago Wolves hockey. We expect to be playing in June, and anything else is unacceptable.”

When the Wolves open the season Saturday at Allstate Arena against the Rockford Icehogs, they’ll do so with a new coaching staff.

After coach Craig MacTavish left in June, the Wolves hired Scott Arniel, who was fired in January after more than a season with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Arniel is confident he can manage the balancing act of player development and a winning tradition.

“[The NHL parent-club Vancouver Canucks] want their players to have success at the American Hockey League level, and that means winning, so it breeds learning how to take it up when you move to the next level,” Arniel said. “You can do both. You can teach and win hockey games at the same time.”

With NHL players still locked out, the Wolves have a plethora of talent. But when the lockout ends, Wolves mainstays such as Haydar know that the team will have to deal with losing some of that talent.

“You have to learn how to adapt to new situations, new players, new linemates,” Haydar said.

Pretty close to what we will see I think. I do believe that Sterling will get a starting spot on line 2-3 though. Most likely one of Friesen/Mallet/Longpre sits this game.

I don't think Sterling gets in ahead of Sweatt, Rodin or Longpre. He's a pretty good player, but man, he is soooo small. Feel bad for the guy; if he was 4 or 5 inches taller, he'd be in big demand. Can't think of any players that short in the NHL.

I'd be very surprised if they went with that much inexperience at center. The Wolves are really small and thin up the middle. This probably needs to be addressed soon. Three of the four guys you propose to start at center today are 5'10" or less in Schroeder's case.

This is something that needs to be addressed from a Canucks point of view as well. Guance has some size so that at least gives me some hope.

Sterling is a very good player in the AHL. With Peoria, he was a pain to play against and has a wicked shot. I'd be shocked to not see him in the top 6 to start. He has also played several years with the Wolves and had good chemistry with Haydar in the past. Its a combo that must be tried. Sterling is a better AHL player than Sweatt, Rodin and Longpre. But he won't knock off Sweatt because Sweatt and Schroeder are a combo that i haven't seen split up since November of last season. Arniel would be bonkers to scratch him if he wants to build a winning team like he says he does.

Miller i think should play. He is a key PK guy and a guy that never takes a shift off. He plays before Longpre if i'm making the lines.

Let's face it, one of our prospects will likely sit out this game. And that's fine. There are a lot more games to go.

Yup, gotta go with DJK on this, Sterling won't be sitting out this year. My lines would probably be looking like this:

Sweatt - Schroeder - Kassian
Sterling - Ebbett - Haydar
Rodin - Pinizotto - Miller
Desbiens - Friesen - Mallet

Connauton - Tanev
Matheson - Mullen
Joslin - Andersson

Pretty small second line at 5'7, 5'9 and 5'9.

Maybe Pinizotto can be switched up with Ebbett. Longpre is a C and played quite well last year.

Sterling is a career AHLer and is a fair bit older than the other players. He is a player that has to be in the top 6. I am anticipating that Rodin is going to have a better year and (as someone else stated) Sweatt has good chemistry with Shroeder.

Would love to see Rodin on the top line with JS and ZK. The All-2009 Line...

Miller I believe is a LW.

I also think they would play Longpre at centre over Friesen first, simply due to his inexperience. But as mentioned above, either way someone's going to be sitting out each night unless one of them gets moved to wing and displaces somebody else.

But this is depth, gotta love having options.

Now I don't follow the AHL, but two questions, first why was Sauve scratched in your lineup? Was hoping that he'd at least be in the Top 4 with the Wolves by now, and second how is Peter Andersson's development? (It's his first season over from Sweden, if I'm correct, so what would be expectations for his career right now?)
