    What kind of lineup would it take the Flyers to challenge and be successful in winning a Stanley Cup in the near future?

    The one they'll have in 2020-21:

    Lindblom (24)- Patrick (22) - TK (23)
    G (32) - Couts (28) - Voracek (31)
    JVR (31) - Frost (21) - Allison (23)
    Laughton (25) - Rubtsov (22) - Kase (23)
    just have to figure what to do with Farabee (20), O'Brien (20), Ratcliffe (21), Laczynski (23), Vorobyev (24), NAK (25), Twarynski (23), Lycksell (21)

    Provorov (23) - Ghost (27)
    Sanheim (24) - Myers (23)
    Morin (25)/Hagg - Hagg (25)/Friedman (25)
    with Hogberg (22) and Kalynuk (23) knocking on the door

    Hart/Sandstrom

    At some point, probably around the ED, Hextall will make a series of moves, maybe moving/losing JVR or Voracek, packaging some young prospects for a young starter, and trading surplus prospects he'd lose anyway for future draft picks (a la Marody).
    I think the two triggering events will be when Hart is ready to carry the load and the ED, when he has to work around losing a major current starter.
    Notice that the young players will be entering their peak years, with a lot of young players behind them to step in if they falter.

    That's when Patrick is clearly better than Tavares, right?

    He better be, Patrick should be better defensively, and I think the offensive chops will come around.
    People around here talk as if total points scored are the "be all and end all."
    To me, I focus first on ES points, then xGF% (are they "cheap" points, with the other team scoring more), finally STs, and PK is as important as PP.
    Patrick has the potential to be better than JT on PK, better overall at ES due to his potential defensively, so if he's never a big PP scorer, so what?

    I'd take Kopitar over JT any day.

    Load up NHL 19 and start up franchise mode. That's the only way this team will have a cup winning roster in the near future.

    I'll play along because I am bored at work.

    20-21 Flyers

    HC: Knoblauch, who as it turns out, is nothing like Hakstol as a coach. *fingers crossed*

    1A: Giroux - Couturier - Konecny
    1B: Farabee - Patrick - Voracek
    2A: JVR - Frost - Allison
    2B: Rubstov - Vorobyev - Lindblom

    Can't even label these lines 1-4 because there is just too much talent and depth.

    Aube-Kubel, Twarynski

    D1: Provorov - Ghost
    D2: Sanheim - Myers
    D3: Morin - Friedman

    Hagg

    Nicely balanced. That 2nd pair could wreak havoc on other teams 3rd and 4th lines.

    G1: Hart
    G2: Stolarz/Lyon/Other vet back-up

    19-20 (repeat)
    HC: Hak

    Vdv

    Amac - Hagg

    Swap Brennan with Manning (off-season trade) and it's perfect.
