[Gm'ing] Line-Up For 2012-2013

Recommended Posts

Coach: Craig MacTavish










Nothing against AV but I think he's lost his ability to lead the group to success. MG will re-sign Pahlsson as he is certainly a playoff performer and one the best checkers in the league. MG will trade Raymond for pick(s) and may trade Ballard for pick(s) as well. Connaughton may be ready for the NHL and he would be paired with Tanev like in the wolves. Salo will be third pairing, playing significantly less as it will be his last year. He'll also sit out games often. He will add to veteran presence and mentor Grags, Tanev, and Connaughton.

One goaltender will be traded this summer. It will Schneider or Lack. My gut feeling it will be Lack as Cannata just signed an ELC.

Kassian will be used properly, as a Power Forward.

Sedin Sedin Burrows

Booth Kesler Kassian

Higgins Pahhlson David Jones

Bitz Lapierre Hansen

Hamhuis Bieksa

Ryan Murray Tanev

Edler Gragnanini



Everyone benefits form a coaching change, especially Edler Tanev and Kassian.

David Jones is the 2nd big power forward we need had 27 goals in 70 games with Colorado last year and is from B.C. He weighs 215 lbs.

Tanev and Murray develop into the star defensemen and Edler gets less minutes to develop him and Gragnani as a solid 3rd pairing.

Overall the team has a training camp and regular season to actually develop chemistry instead of sticking to an imaginary game plan AV thought our players knew of.

Craig Mactavish whips Kesler, Bieksa, and Kassian into the players we need them to consistently be.
