Distraction Thread - Next Year's Starting Lineup

This team doesn't have a second-line C. Based on his play so far this season, I'd rate Danault marginally ahead of Pleks, because he at least shows some signs of awareness of how to use his linemates (something Plekanec has never been very good at). Plekanec, meanwhile, no longer has the wheels to play the 'torpedo' offensive game he once did and is now a pure checker.  I would add that it's very hard to see how this formula = a Cup champ. Galchenyuk will be mercilessly targeted come playoff time.

Its obvious, Plekanec is just saving himself for the playoffs.

How does one best resign Radu?

 

If we sign him now, he gets exposed to Vegas?

 

If we wait until Jul 1, he might go anywhere?

In Radulov's case, I think we need to resign him now. He seems happy in Montreal, he 's contributing, and I don't mind exposing let's say Mitchell to ensure Radulov stays in Montreal. The impact of losing Radulov is far greater than losing a Mitchell. 

 

Another guy in a similar situation will be Markov. I'm pretty quite sure there is no risk of him signing elsewhere during the off-season, it looks like he will play his entire career with us, therefore we could look at resigning Markov only after the expansion draft... however it is still unclear whether the NHL will look at these cases, and if so, what type of penalties team could face. The other option would be t expose Alexei Emelin, and protect Markov, which I personally don't have a problem with if we really have to.

So after another amazing deadline day, here's what THIS year's starting lineup will be IMO:

 

Pacioretty - Danault - Radulov

King - Galchenyuk - Gallagher

Lehkonen - Plekanec - Shaw

Byron - Ott - Mitchell

Martinsen

 

Markov - Weber

Emelin - Petry

Beaulieu - Benn

Davidson, Nesterov

 

Price

Montoya

 

Flynn gets waived and McCarron is sent down.

No one's getting waived - the roster max of 23 is now finished.

Is there a new limit? Can you clarify?

After the trade deadline, there is no limit to roster sizes.

That should be the new sign in the dressing room. Pretty much the epitaph to the Bergevin era.

This would be a sick line-up. We can dream can't we?

 

I get fuzzy feelings deep inside when I consider what a line with Tavares and Radulov could do and then you use Chucky there with his great shot.

It'd be an amzing line...except for the 'Galchenyuk on the 4th line' part 😃
