@Luke_R Staal would easily turn this team from medicore to good. Not contender, but good.

@nuttley4t3 hmmm I think I may agree with that. Couturier potentially has more years left than Staal and hasn't hit his ceiling yet. I like Staal but think he is going to cost too much in a trade with the Leafs in particular.

I would like to see them  try Frattin - Ashton - Kozun as 4th line in one of the Detroit games coming up. It basically is an audition line so why not switch it up? Don't get me wrong I'm all for consistency, and I think that Kozun should be the mainstay on line 4 until they find the right duo to play with him.

Also, maybe Robidas sit out for Gardiner ? I feel like Jake definitely needs to get into a game soon.

@Top Jimmy LOL c'mon man it isn't that inconceivable that these million dollar athletes are spending some of that money on that stuff. These are guys who were the golden boys all their lives and had access to things that some didn't.

@FRyan Because the coaches were expecting Dion to overcome this on his own, rather than put him in a better position to not have to do so.

@Top Jimmy Frattin can be waived, he's just open to poachers, which I really doubt anyone is going to do given his track record over the past year. He will report to the Marlies and rediscover his game. BUT I can also see him staying up and being a healthy scratch while one of Orr/McLaren get sent down.

@Burtonboy I guess Randy has a soft spot for Frattin. Will be an interesting convo between the coaching staff and management about who goes where to start the season. I like Frattin too, I want him to succeed but maybe he needs some time with the Marlies again to gain some confidence.

@Hmmm Is that in reference to Franson? I'm not trying to hate on the guy I just think that he is expendable.

@loomx @FrankFerrant I agree with the trade Franson sentiment. Let him build his value and see what he can be moved for.

I guess they just wanted to see more of what Percy could do and let the big German rest. I'm glad for Holzer and Kozun if they indeed make the cut and stick.... they paid their dues.

@loomx @Bruce Gamble Plus we gotta see who his linemates are actually going to be. Pre-season isn't conducive to chemistry in that way.

@Jmessih Those guys can be healthy scratches every night until we need one of them. Which will be once every like 20 games. I do think that goons are a necessary evil, to be used sparingly once every 3 months.

If any one player has clearly earned a spot on this roster it's Brandon Kozun. Also, Polak is way better than I thought he was... let's hope this all translates into the regular season. Robidas has looked decent.

@loomx @Burtonboy

Kessel - Bozak - Lupul
Frattin - Kadri - JVR
Clarkson - Holland - Komarov
Winnik - Santorelli - Booth
Kontiola, Ashton

This is the lineup I would experiment with in Game 1. Frattin and Clarkson could change around.

For sure. That's what Mark Fraser did so well. I think guys like Komarov, Frattin and Clarkson will help in that regard. Hopefully Polak too. 

I don't want to see an opposing player get close to Bernier after a whistle. Fuck that.

@N_Leafs @Cloud09                     If a goon is going to be iced he should be used strategically. Let's say a player on the opposing team takes liberties with one of our guys and a "fighter" isn't dressed that night. The next time we face that team said fighter would be in the line-up for the purpose of retaliation.

@Dangle_My_Berries   I would like to see Holzer make the jump to the big club as a bottom pairing guy. Gotta start developing these picks, same goes for D'Amigo and Holland. Would be nice to see some guys from within the system surprise at camp and become part of this teams future.

I like the idea of playing Komarov with Kadri, I think it makes perfect sense. Kadri's skill would help elevate Komarov's lacklustre offensive numbers, Komarovs physical play will help Kadri get into games physically. They would also draw a high number of penalties, in theory at least. Hope this happens!
