    I heard this question posed on Spittin' Chiclets, and I thought it'd be interesting to see people's impressions of a combined Habs-Sens roster (taking into account that both teams are in a transitional/rebuilding period). I've debated this with some buddies, and I wanted to open it up to further discussion.

    Drouin-Duchene-Stone
    Domi-Danault-Gallagher
    Dzingel-Tierney-Ryan
    Tatar-Plekanec-Boedker

    Chabot-Weber
    Mete-Petry
    Alzner-Ceci

    Price
    Anderson


    Let me know if I've omitted anyone that should be here or if any player looks out of place and I'll make the suggested changes.

    Still not a playoff team. Especially considering Weber is out for awhile.

    Disagree with player choices and where you put them but you could make a contending team out of the two rosters unless neither Price nor Anderson can work their way back to at least average.

    It’s pretty hard to combine any two rosters and not make at least a playoff team. Every team has at least a few star players and some quality depth or middle of the lineup guys.

    This would be a playoff team, D and C might be too thin to be a contender.

    You could probably merge the Canucks in there and they still wouldn't be higher than a 5th seed.

    Without Weber (and maybe even with), that’s the worst defense in the league.

    That's a mediocre team, pretty sad it takes 2 teams combined to form that.

    To make the playoffs in the East I have:

    Atlantic:

    Tampa
    Toronto
    Boston

    Metro:

    Pitts
    Washington
    Columbus

    Wildcards:
    Florida
    Philly

    I don’t see that team as being better than either Florida or Philly

    I would definitely take that D over our current D. I prefer Rielly to every player listed but the rest seem like upgrades until you get to Alzner:

    Chabot-Weber
    Mete-Petry
    Alzner-Ceci

    Why would you even count Weber's injury?

    Kinda pretty obvious that in the scenario op created, you ignore contracts and injuries

    Let's see.........

    Horrible at LW...CHECK
    Mediocre at RW...CHECK
    Horrible on D(Weber's not even back for 4 months yet)...CHECK
    Mediocre in goal...CHECK

    Bottom-feeder for sure.

    Even merging that team the D makes me cringe Probably a bubble team, I could see them making the playoffs if Price is at least average

    Bubble team although its a solid team. Not nearly as bad as everybody's making them sound. I think they're capable of competing with Florida for that 8 spot. If New Jersey can make it so can they. Price having a solid team in front of him could bring him back to his old self, and if that's the case, they have a damn good chance.

    I think ( not that I want tho) Habs alone will be a bubble team. They will surprise HF who thinks they are bottom 5.

    Wow, that's depressing. Combining two NHL rosters and your #2C is still Danault.

    Having Tatar, Plekanec, Ryan, Boedker instead of guys like Tkachuk, Byron, Lehkonen, Pageau will for sure weaken your line up.

    It is quite impressive how bad the centre depth is even with both teams combined lol.

    Alright, maybe it was a bit of hyperbole. But I still think that’s a bottom-5 defense. Maybe bottom-10.

    I actually think a Sens-Nucks roster looks pretty good.

    Boeser-Duchene-Stone
    Peterson-Horvat-Baertchi
    Dzingle-Gaudette-Eriksson
    Tkachuk-Tierney-Beagle

    Chabot-Tanev
    Edler-Ceci
    Wideman-Boro
