    This is what I would do:


    Ladd Little Wheeler
    Kane Scheifele Setoguchi
    Tangradi Jokinen Frolik
    Halischuk Slater O'Dell
    Wright

    Enström Buff
    Clitsome Bogosian
    Stuart Trouba
    Redmond

    Pavs
    Monty

    ------------------------------

    and this is what Noel will do:

    Ladd Little Wheeler
    Kane Scheifele Setoguchi
    Tangradi Jokinen Frolik
    Wright Slater Thorburn
    Halischuk

    Enström Buff
    Clitsome Bogosian
    Stuart Trouba
    Postma

    Feel free to save this and laugh at me if I'm wrong.

    That's the lineup I'd prefer to see (up front - I'd change the D). Here is what I think we will see.

    LLW
    Kane-Jokinen-Setoguchi
    Wright-Scheifele-Frolik
    Tangradi-Slater-Thorburn

    Enstrom-Bogo
    Clitsome-Buff
    Stuart-Trouba

    Pavelec
    Montoya

    I know this won't happen, but this is what I like based on pre-season.

    Ladd - Little - Wheeler
    Kane - Scheifele - Setoguchi
    Halischuk - Jokinen - Frolik
    Tangradi - Slater - Peluso

    Enstrom - Byfuglien
    Bogosian - Trouba
    Clitsome - Postma

    I'm leaving Stuart out because, even though I love his intensity, he was terrible in the pre-season, and Postma has improved quite a bit since last season. I'd love to have Redmond in, but where Postma improved since last season, Redmond seems to have stayed roughly the same.

    I feel bad leaving Thorburn out because he's had a ****** job on the team since forever, but I like Peluso's size and intimidation better than Thorburn's slightly better than average speed and... well, that's about all Thorburn has going for him. Sorry, Burnsy.

    Wright has good speed and is good defensively, but I like Tangradi's size and offensive potential better. Tangradi is also decent defensively, so I don't think he will hurt us either.

    I'd like to see the following:

    LLW
    Kane-Schiefele-Frolik
    Halischuk-Jokinen-Setoguchi
    Tangradi-Slater-Wright
    Peluso, Thorburn

    Enstrom-Byfuglien
    Clitsome-Bogosian
    Stuart-Trouba
    Postma

    I think I have Wright out of position, but no biggie.

    Anyone else get the feeling from Noel's comments that the days of trying to shoehorn him into the second line are done?

    In the Banff interview Noel mentions that Bogosian and Clitsome are day-to-day, although he said nothing about Wheeler.

    In another interview he said Wheeler was day-to-day as well and that it's an "all-over" injury. Whatever that means.

    Ladd - Little - Wheeler
    Kane - Scheifele - Setoguchi
    Halischuk - Jokinen - Frolik
    Tangradi - Slater - Wright
    Peluso (put him in for Wright against "tough" teams)
    Thorburn

    Enstrom - Byfuglien
    Bogosian - Trouba
    Clitsome - Postma
    Stuart

    Pavelec
    Montoya

    This will never happen though.

    Noel just laughed when he called it an "all over" injury and described it as just a variety of "tweaks." Didn't sound particularly serious...

    We all know Noel will be playing Jokinen on Kane's line, because well, he's a vet and is paid like a #2C. He doesn't suit a 3rd line role because he has no defensive ability.

    Just cut Jokinen already...

    I think every poster will suggest we want to see 55 with Kane and Setogucci but expects to see Ollie in that spot. Myself included.

    Would love to see Peluso play on the fourth line instead of Wright. Don't think there is a quantum difference in talent. However, do you want to see your opponents saying "crap, I don't want to play against that guy" or "my goodness, look how hard he tries"?

    Yeah, the 4th doesn't really bother me. 17 instead of 15 or 27 on the 3rd is what bugs me.

    My ideal bottom 6 would go:

    Halischuk-Jokinen-Frolik
    Tangradi-Slater-Peluso

    It's just the way he was flipping the lines all over the place during the preseason. He still has Jokinen on the second line apparently and looks like Wright is in the top nine. Just two things to point out.
