Hoffman has just re-signed 1yr two way contract as per TSN
would indicate that he MAY be traded or given his last chance this year.
Can't wait to see how our PP lines up.
Ryan - Spezza - Michalek
Corvo - Karlsson
MacArthur/Conacher - Turris - Zibanejad
Cowen - Wiercioch
It's hard to imagine the PP being better by removing Gonch and Alfie but that first unit looks pretty damn good...think Corvo has a bigger bomb than Gonchar and I think that Ryan will finally end up being the presence in front of the net we have needed for so long.
If healthy, I think Michalek fits the bill for that role. I was watching the Karlsson montage from the 2011-2012 season, (hurry the hell up september ) and there were a number of plays where after a goal the goalie threw his hands up in the air as if to say "What the hell guys, I couldn't see anything with #9's fat ass in my way" Not to mention he has slick hands around the net and is hard to move.
I'd rather have Wier and Corvo play their natural sides.
Cowen - Karlsson
Wier - Corvo
Greening - Spezza - Ryan
MacArthur - Turris - Michalek
Conacher - Zibby - Condra
Smith - Pageau - Neil
Methot - Karlsson
Cowen - Gryba
Wiercioch - Phillips
Originally this thread was trying to make the best lineup out of our younger players that were 2-3 years away from making it to get an idea of what the potential of the current system was. a couple trades and signings later i think the 'current' future is looking better than the 'past' future.
All missing players have been traded or let go. Any young guys in the system that should be in there instead?
