    Help me out here people. I am looking for real scenarios and not a wish list.

    Who will be on the opening day roster and who will miss out?

    Injuries have temporarily simplified the forward logjam ...

    Zett Dats Abs
    Franz Weiss Alfie
    Tatar Ando Weiss
    Cleary Emms Sammy
    Bert and Miller are the odd men out currently....

    Dmen are good to go already. Lashoff will be eating Murphs hotdogs in the pressbox hopefully.

    You had Weiss twice. But yeah, other than that, I think for now we're pretty much set. Things will get interesting when guys start to come off LTIR.

    Forgive me for my ignorance then, what happens to Burt and Miller? They obviously aren't going to GR so do we just eat their salaries?

    People should not worry about extra players. Nothing extraordinary happens for them. They will play when some of the TOP12 is unavailable to play. That's called depth. Veteran sitting on the bench is not wasting any development from a younger player. Veteran also has experience how to jump in after a long break at the pressbox and how to be instantly effective. Younger guys usually don't have this experience.

    I think your carried away with this depth thing, no other team is carrying as many forwards as us.

    Miller is a good dependable player. Shame he signed a 3 yr deal to come back here. I expect him still to play 40+ games.

    It's a choice between 13 or 14 forwards and 7 or 8 defensemen. Not really a big deal that we chose more forwards. Three players are going to be scratches every night in either case.

    The problem I have is the cost of it. Say we have Miller, Bert and Tootoo when hes back that are scratched. Thats just over 5 million sitting there

    Better to have a veteran in the pressbox than a youngin'.

    You don't play players based on salary. And still, there's a very low chance the top 12 all stay healthy. We also shouldn't have 15 healthy forwards on the roster anyway.

    babs loves miller. i can definitely see him taking sammys spot on opening night if there's no further injuries. i think babs would want miller as a first line pk'er.

    something like:
    andy-miller
    emmerton-cleary
    weiss-franzen
    z-dats

    cleary didn't even pk much last year and i personally think he's horrible (way to slow). but he's been there in preseason right? if miller is out, that pk looks awful unless we're gonna rely heavily on z and dats

    Cleary on the PK is a liability. Players like Miller, Eaves, Dats, Z, Mule, Emmerton, Andersson should all be out there before him. Don't know how good at PK Weiss is.

    Not sure Babcock is in love with Sammy. Plus, he'd have to play a pretty gritty, up-tempo style of game, because Babcock loves his energy lines. I could see Sammy switching into a scoring line, disappointing, getting scratched, then switching into a scoring line again, disappointing, getting scratched, repeat. Possibly the same with Bert.

    All reports I've seen have Alfie listed as questionable...so it might not be tonight.

    His point is not that higher paid players should play just because they cost a lot.

    His point is that 5M is better spent on another player who will play and make a difference, as opposed to being used up on players who are sitting on the bench.

    Exactly. Michael Ryder got a 2 year 3.5 a year deal and had 16 goals and 35 points. Put him on the top line and knock Abby down to the 3rd or 4th. Money better spent there

    I think this is the most realistic scenario. The thing with Bert though is he has the chemistry with Dats. We've seen him put pucks in the net on his line, and he can go to the dirty areas and retrieve the puck. I see him as the most likely of the two to get minutes with Z/Dats.
