Finnish Aho Posted July 3, 2015 Share Posted July 3, 2015 Trade, Healthy Scratch* Season Opener: Sedin - Sedin - Burrows Baertschi - Bonino - Vrbata Kenins - Horvat - Virtanen Prust - Friesen - Dorsett Vey* Higgins Hansen Edler - Tanev Hamhuis - Weber Sbisa - Corrado Bartkowski* Clendening* Miller Markstrom Bachman _____________________________________________________________________________________ Seasons end: (non-playoffs) Sedin - Sedin - Burrows Baertschi - Horvat - Virtanen Kenins - Bonino - Grenier Gaunce - Friesen - Dorsett Vey* Hamhuis, Vrbata, Prust Edler - Tanev Sbisa - Corrado Bartkowski - Weber Miller Markstrom Bachman Read the Spoiler!!1! _____________________________________________________________________________________ Sedins: Both have exceptional years 65-80 points and don't regress too much. Burrows: Sticks with the Sedins for the course of the year and gets traded for 2017 picks after we sign Lucic. (If he plays well this season for LA) Baertschi: Plays his 1st full season in the NHL, if its a success he sticks on the 2nd line all year, will eventually switch positions with Daniel Sedin when it comes time. (Not for a few seasons) Bonino: Moves down from the 2nd to the 3rd not because of his play but because oh Horvats, creating better center depth. Vrbata: If we don't make the playoffs he will be traded at the deadline for 2016 1st + as long as he plays to his potential for the 1st half of the season. *crosses fingers* Higgins: Probably going to get traded this off-season for 2016 picks to make room for Kenins. Hansen: Love him, but probably going to be traded for 2016 picks to make room for Virtanen. (Who is a physical Hansen as of now) Kenins: Moves up from the 4th line instead of being pushed out of the lineup hes young and needs more ice-time and could benefit greatly from a Kenins - Horvat - Virtanen line. Horvat: In his second season we could see him move up to the 2nd line depending on his play either way next year will be good developmental year for him. Virtanen: Benning thinks this kids has the potential to crack the lineup, I think he will and Benning will make room, if so he'll play on the 3rd line above Dorsett. Prust: Coming in to help the young guys i don't see him here at the end of the year if we miss the playoffs hes just to valuable to a contender. Friesen: Had a glorious cup run with comets and is ready for the jump. he's a fiesty in your face player like Cassels. (who should bake in the AHL imo, btw) Prust - Friesen - Dorsett line would be great imo. Vey: ???? His own fate to seal. Edler, Tanev: Top pairing 4evarrr. Hamhuis: Paired with Weber for the 1st half of the season and traded at the deadline for a trove of assets. Sbisa will be able to move into the top 4. Sbisa - Weber line would be terrible so i would bring Corrado into the top4 also. Weber: Plays with Hamuis for the 1st half of the year in the top4 and then the bottom pairing with Bartkowski which would look really good for a bottom pairing. Bartkowski: 7th defense man until Hamhuis is traded. that or another defense man is traded this off-season (Hamhuis, Edler, Corrado, Tanev) Clendening: ???? His own fate to seal. Grenier: Comes into the lineup (3RW) after Vrbata gets traded but plays 1st line minutes until then in Utica. Gaunce: Comes into the lineup after Prust is traded and hopefully plays in a shutdown roll for Utica for half a season. Miller: Will probably have a decent to good season while he helps mentor Markstrom Markstrom: Wont take over the starting position for another season and a half unless he surprises. Expect an excellent developmental year. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
