    The Canucks should look more like below. But still too many F’s. Gaunce and Granlund waived. Hopefully Gagner traded.

    Baertschi - Horvat - Boeser
    Goldobin - Petterson/Gagner - Eriksson
    Leipsic - Sutter - Virtanen
    Schaller - Beagle - Leipsic
    Injured: Rousell

    Edler Tanev
    Hutton/Pouliot - Stecher
    MDZ - Badbranson

    Markstrom
    Nilsson

    Right. Haha I couldn’t figure out why I had too many players.

    Hopefully Gaunce on Line 4 until Roussel returns then Roussel and Leipsic alternating between line 3+4.

    My guess on NYR lines for the season opener

    Kreider-Zibenajad-Buchnevich
    Vesey-Hayes-Zucarello
    Spooner-Andersson-Namestnikov
    LW*-Holland-Fast

    *LW is one of Beleskey, McLeod, Nieves
    Perhaps one of Lindqvist or Mekanen makes it as a RW with Fast moving over to the port side

    Skjei-Shattenkirk
    Staal-DeAngelo
    Pionk*-McQuaid

    *Pionk to play the offside over Claesson

    Blues top 5 lines so far in camp

    Maroon-O’Reilly-Tarasenko
    Schwartz-Schenn-Perron
    Steen-Bozak-Blais
    Fabbri-Thomas-Kyrou/Jaskin
    Sanford-Barbashev-Jaskin/Kyrou


    One of these guys won’t make the team, obviously.

    Its just my opinion but I think Zibanejad & Hayes take the top 2 center positions, so NY will look for more of a defensive center and that player is Lias Andersson. Lias can also kill penalties.

    Chytil is more of an offense first player, so if Hayes is asked again to play C3 then its very possible we see him opening night.

    My hunch is we won't see both Andersson & Chytil at the same time because both the GM & Coach Quinn have said they will play center.

    I doubt NY plays Andersson or Chytil as 4C. That is a waste of talent and burns the first year on their contracts. Look for Peter Holland to play 4C or perhaps Boo Nieves.

    One of the two rookies will start in Hartford.

    Remember that Chytil was the youngest player in the AHL last season so more "seasoning" is a good thing and something NY hasn't really done too much of over the years. Another half season as top dog on the Wolfpack is quality experience for Filip who is still learning the North American game.

    Tampa lines for their first game:

    90 ALEXANDER VOLKOV - 91 STEVEN STAMKOS - 86 NIKITA KUCHEROV
    18 ONDREJ PALAT - 21 BRAYDEN POINT - 15 ANDY ANDREOFF
    7 MATHIEU JOSEPH - 9 TYLER JOHNSON - 46 TAYLOR RADDYSH
    82 GABRIEL FORTIER - 36 ALEXEY LIPANOV - 47 JONNE TAMMELA

    77 VICTOR HEDMAN - 5 DAN GIRARDI
    27 RYAN McDONAGH - 6 ANTON STRALMAN
    74 DOMINIK MASIN - 55 BRAYDON COBURN

    88 ANDREI VASILEVSKIY
    1 CONOR INGRAM

    Not too horribly far off from what their opening night lineup should be.

    Corey Schneider had the same major surgery as Pekka Rinne.

    He dressed for the first pre season game vs NY but I doubt we see him in net for some time.

    Rushing back could result in the same trouble Rinne had

    For Ottawa:

    Dzingel Duchene Boedker

    Tkachuk Tierney Stone

    Formenton Chlapik Ryan

    Pajaarvi Smith Pyatt


    Chabot Ceci

    Borowiecki Wideman

    Wolanin DeMelo

    I’m predicting Formenton will get his 9 games before being sent back to London. So far he’s looked like he belongs, but another full year in the OHL would be best for his development in my mind. Once he’s sent back I see Rudolfs Balcers getting called up and taking his spot on the 3rd line. NHL ready now, and has displayed good chemistry with Chlapik.

    Based on the prospect tournament & 1 preseason game, I think they start Zadina in the AHL for now.

    UPDATE: Mike Green was just diagnosed with a virus that attacks the liver & is out indefinitely, unfortunately for him & our D.

    Bert-Larkin-Mantha
    Ras-Nielsen-Nyquist
    Helm-AA-Vanek
    Svechnikov-Glendening-Abby
    Frk/Witkowski

    W/O Green to start season...

    DDK-Daley
    Ericsson-Hronek
    Kronwall-Jensen
    Sulak

    If/when Green comes back, they move Jensen asap, as reports indicated there was some interest by several GM's last year. The only problem is Jensen & Green are our only currently established RHD...so replacing them with any of our upcoming LHD: Cholowski, Sulak, Hicketts isn't really an option. Saarijarvi is at least 1 year away. Ericsson played the m ajority of his career on the Right side, however it is not his natural position, nor strength, especially in the twilight of his career. Daley is a LHD who prefers the right side...

    Daley's NTC is up at '19 TDL, so he'll be replaced by Cholowski.

    FFWD TDL '19:

    DDK-Green
    Kronwall-Hronek
    Cholowski-Ericcson
    Sulak
    Hicketts (1st callup)

    Flyers made a bunch of cuts then practiced with:

    Giroux Couts Konecny
    JVR Patrick Voracek
    Lindblom Vorobyev Simmonds
    Laughton Knight(Corbin) Raffl

    Weal, Weise, Lehtera and Leier as the main extra guys.

    Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck
    Kuhnhackl-Filppula-Komarov

    Leddy-Boychuk
    Hickey-Pulock
    Toews-Pelech

    Does Haley get waived to the AHL or really stick around as the 13th forward? I know he cleared waivers, but did Hutchinson get sent down as well or might they keep him around and give Luongo more rest on practice days, etc?

    Kings forwards have been practicing and playing like this for the last 3 days.

    Iafallo-Kopitar-Brown
    Kempe-Carter-Kovalchuk
    Pearson-Amadio-Toffoli
    Clifford-Thompson-Lewis

    This could be the opening defense. Depends on Forbort's health.

    Brickley-Doughty
    Muzzin-Martinez
    Phaneuf-LaDue

    Actually, it's now looking like the Canes will have 4-5 rookies in their opening night line-up unless there is a D for F trade before the season starts. Svechnikov, Necas, Zykov, Foegele are pretty much locks right now. Wallmark has a shot also due to the injury to Rask. Canes have 18 forwards left in camp and 9 of them are rookies.

    We have no idea what the forward line-up will look like though.

    Toronto had a bunch of rookies in the line-up two seasons ago and made the playoffs: Matthews, Nylander, Marner, Brown, Zaitsev, Hyman all played a full season. Soshnikov played 56 games as well.

    Kotkaniemi will start the season in Montreal, so the opening night roster should look like this:

    Jonathan Drouin - Jesperi Kotkaniemi - Joel Armia
    Tomas Tatar - Phillip Danault - Brendan Gallagher
    Paul Byron - Max Domi - Artturi Lehkonen
    Jacob De La Rose - Matthew Peca - Charles Hudon
    Extras: Tomas Plekanec & Nikita Scherbak
    Injured: Andrew Shaw & Nicolas Deslauriers

    Mike Reilly - Jeff Petry
    Victor Mete - Noah Juulsen
    Karl Alzner - Jordie Benn
    Extra: Xavier Ouellet
    Injured: Shea Weber, David Schlemko

    Carey Price - Antti Niemi
