How do you hate Gionta but want Stoll? Stoll is an even worse one season wonder than Gionta. At least Gio continues to at least reach 40 points a year. Stoll only did that the year they went to the finals.

I think that's pretty reasonable. And I think we can get 4 solid lines out of that, maybe alternate Langs and Zubrus.

I really don't like the idea of Vrana as a first line center right now. He didn't exactly light up the AHL. I know the surrounding cast was weak, but I don't see anything that says he's a number 1 center right now.

And Tallackson has gotten enough chances and shown little. I'd rather plug Pelley or Sarge in his place.

Also, no love for Pando? That makes me sad. :(

Please god no. He is terrible. Even Rangers fans hate him.

disagree, he's a nice offensive threat and the best Rag Dman.. carried the Rags to the playoffs. Love him. F^ck Gomez.

Elias - Langkow - Gionta

Parise - Zajac - Langenbrunner

Pandolfo - Madden - Clarkson

Zubrus - Holik - Rupp

Martin - Oduya

White - Liles

Vishnevski - Mottau

7th man - Greene

Realistic.

However, im not positive on Holik and i would like another offensive defenseman.

Mottau ;) Kidding right?

Rupp ... Nice guy to teach the new AHL players how to adjust to the NHL but not a Devil next year.

The only lineup presented that's a bonafide improvement and corrects our biggest weakness...goals. All the others we are no better off scoring wise than we were this past year. I don't like the thought of losing Oduya, but you have to give up something to get something. Unfortunately, I don't think a package of Gionta and Johnny would be enough.

Jussi Jokinen? That package sure isn't bringing back Olli Jokinen.

With the way I've watched Lou operate over the years, it wouldn't shock me one bit to see Holikenstein reappear in a Diablos uni.

it's not enough:

zajac & gionta, greene + 3rd would do it though. i'd have to swallow hard on giving up on zajac, but seeing how much the atlantic has improved itself, the devils cannot make a minor cosmetic change and hope they catch lighting in a bottle and another Marty year like this one.

I still love the optimism of a major FA coming here.

Lou will let the market shake out and try to pick up a bargain later.

I think trading Gio now would be a waste; in our minds he's still the Gio that scored 48 but to every other GM he's just a player who had a career year. If we deal him that's what we can expect to get back, not a bona fide scorer.

Pandolfo, Mottau and to a lesser degree Salvador I could see happening. Who's going to kidnap Lou and make those other deals though? That old leopard isn't changing his spots at this point in the game.

lou can't bargain hunt this year, last year he could. he doesn't have to get hossa or campbell but he has to get one of the top 15 players without a doubt.

my dream team includes hossa who is possible but almost certainly foolish.

so i won't put it here.

If Elias stays at center than

Malone/Elias Elias/Holik Malone/Bergfors/Vrana

Parise Zajac Langenbrunner

Pandolfo Madden Gionta

Zubrus Rupp Clarkson

Notes: I wouldn't mind bringing back Bobby Holik for Vet experience

Oduya Martin

Vishnevski Smith

White Liles

Extras: Corrente, Mottau(I would bring him back with a 2 year/$900K-$1M a year)

This would be a reasonable roster for Lou's standards. But realistically those moves would not happen. I mean I definitely think Lou will be active this summer, and yes I expect some movement on July 1st and not the sit back and enjoy every good name being taken off the market by the Flyers and the Rangers like he did last year. Right now we have to focus on June 20th, thats when the Draft is and who we will pick at #21, my prediction is John Carlson of the Indiana Ice.
