@TheLoovTrain Loaded with high end centers, watch bob Mckenzie's pre season draft rankings.

@Jmessih @Mitch_S2 Komarov drives the play on any line he's been on, I wouldn't have an issue with him being a complimentary player onthe top line.

@Jmessih I like that line. 


MY only issue with it is that it likely pushes Komarov out of the top 9.

@Cameron19 @Burtonboy I liked Roberts' comments about Phil, He was talking about how guys need to do certain things to increase speed or explosiveness. 


He said clearly this guy has fast twitch muscles, diet and exercise is not affecting his ability to play, what it comes down to is how long he will be able to do.

@Cameron19 @loomx Agreed I think Loov gets another shot with Tallinder out.

@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2 @Alec Brownscombe Shocking though , he was for awhile considered the best player outside the NHL. Still only 24

Curious to see if the Markstrom situation could get the goalie market moving, maybe someone gets desperate for Reimer.

@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2  I agree Nylander's upside makes that trade just too risky. Although I would argue Couturier does have the upside for a top six center.


I do see this year as a potential break out year for him so I'd rather make that deal before the draft.

@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2 I would have no problem moving Nylander for a young centerman more suited for our style.
 Not sure it makes sense but I would like to see a guy like Couturier

@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2 Elite hockey prospects has him as a center. For most parts every kid whos the most talented on his team plays center.

Lupul - Holland - Clarkson

Komarov- Santorelli- Winnik 

Balanced?

@TheLoovTrain @Yan28 Booth should make the team, there's a lot of talent there that shouldn't be totally ignored. I don't think Carrick has bumped either Holland or Santorelli. He's been tenacious but I think they would prefer Holland take that spot. 

Ideally we are in playoff contention by the trade deadline, and Santorelli and Booth have become obsolete, we move them for futures and Carrick moves up.

@TheLoovTrain @Mitch_S2 Not to mention Finn who seems to get lost in it all. I'm a big Nilsson fan I think that kid could be a suprising boom in the Nicklas Kronnwall type.

Reimer didn't look so hot, also wasn't to impressed with Granberg. Just so tough to take him over a guy like Loov with that skating ability. 

Leivo totally deserves to make this team.

Personally I think Schwartz is more talented, Johansen fits a need. Tough call

@MaxwellHowe Tallinder looked great actually. No reason not to sign him unless contract spots are an issue which at this time of the year i doubt they are.

@Pent_House @philthethrill Even if he doesn't get his 9 games at the start, can't he be loaned to us from Sweden? Or at the very least called up from the marlies. 


Give him a couple games there first, no harm?

@TheLoovTrain @Mitch_S2 Personally I see Nilsson as a potential Kronwall type player. Either way there aren't many defensive prospects I would move those guys for.

Thoughts? 


Leivo - Bozak - Kessel 

Lupul -  Kadri - JVR 

Komarov - Holland - Frattin 

Booth - Santorelli- Clarkson 


Pretty balanced across the board.

@TheLoovTrain It comes down to Tallinder and Holzer, Granberg will play big minutes with the marlies and I sadly think for Loov is the big club or sweden. 


Personally I'd like to see Loov there can't beat that skating ability. And Nilsson there next year.

@TheLoovTrain @Mitch_S2 @Burtonboy  Kontiola will get every chance to make the team but I do agree that could be a likely scenario.


Personally I'd rather switch Lupul and JVR, primarily based on chemistry issues. 

Lupul and Kadri were productive together, most teams don't get 50 points from their "2nd" line center. When we talk about a lack of balance it never had anything to do with the top 2 lines.

Also don't want to see Nylander play with Kessel, I don't believe that is a line they envisioned. 

Too simlar to Kessel. I'd rather see him play with JVR.

Leo was unbelievable. He was strong on the cycle, and even contributed to some good offense. 

Hell why not give him a chance with Bozak and Kessel. Creates balance? 


Santorelli was ok, but really does make you appreciate Bozak's game that much more. He has chemistry with Kessel and that definitely counts for something.


With these young dmen (Loov, Nilsson and Percy) I don't see Polak staying too long. This mobility on the backend is awesome.

He may show his worth further down the line.

@B_Leaf @Mitch_S2 I should have mentioned that in the initial post, just wondering who was moved up so far.

@MaxwellHowe @Mitch_S2 At the same I'm not sure Carrick will see a ton of growth. He's pretty polished as is, he's not going to be an offensive star at any point. I really wouldn't mind seeing him contribute now.


Komarov- Carrick - Clarkson

Based on last night's game who would you say has moved up on the depth chart? 


Frattin - looks like the front runner for that 2nd RW spot. 

Holzer- Moved well very involved, 7th spot. 

Carrick- Heart and Soul, tough to leave a player like that off the roster. 


I certainly believe that management knew when they signed them that they could potentially loose one of Booth, Santorelli, Kontiola, and Winnik during training camp.
