i think this team has great potential, but they might be missing a checker or two. here's my lines: Samsonov - Fedorov - Kovalev 1st line(size,speed,skill) Kovalchuk - Yashin - Kvasha 2nd line(two isles pass to Ilya) Zubrus - Chubarov - V.Kozlov checking line(defense,size and grit) Datsyuk - Zhamnov - Ovechkin energy line, X-factor extras: V.Bure, Afinogenov, Shishevski Gonchar - D.Markov best offensive D, best defensive D A.Markov - Kasparaitis kasper will cover for markov Khavanov - Volchenkov volchenkov will cover for khavanov extras: Tverdovsky, Vishnevsky i tried to have some size and skill on each line. the 1st line has Kovalev for size/physical play and Fedorov and Samsonov for skill. 2nd line should be dangerous with Yashin and Kvasha playing the boards or going to the net and thus leaving Kovalchuk wide open. checking line has chubarov and zubrus as great checkers but i'm not sure about v.kozlov...although i heard he can play D and the devils trusted him to play D. 4th line can be explosive and if overlooked by the opposition then they will score. Defensive pairs are very solid and should be awesome.
