Just my 2 cents but Bergfors is more likely to play on the top 2 lines than Vrana this coming season, IMO. I also think Zubrus can play on one of the top 2 lines and whether that line is the first or the second line is more semantics than anything this season as the Devils have some talent to spread between those 2 lines.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Gionta, Parise, Rolston
Zajac, Elias, Zubrus
Pandolfo, Madden, Clarkson
Pelley/Vrana, Holik, Rupp

Martin and Oduya
Mottau and Salvador
Greene and White/Corrente
Extras: Vishnevski, Brookbank

Brodeur
Weekes

Really hard to think up what's going to happen on left wing this year, there's gonna be a lot of playing around. Hopefully there's a trade or free agent pickup where we can get a left winger.

So far this team is pretty much the same as last year except we switched Brylin for Rolston, which is a plus, and Holik will more than likely mean the end for Rupp.
So add Rolston and Holik.
Subtract Brylin and Rupp.
I think we upgraded in both spots, but the lack of a bonefide offensive dman is still going to kill this team.

martin and oduya were awesome together last year so you dont know that for sure. and white and mattau were solid. we just need someone who can really move to play with sal and were alright. imagine vv out there with him they would probably just keep hitting each other.

I think Gionta and Zubrus will be the trade bait, but I do think Zajac could be dealt as well if a star defenseman is involved in a trade (Beauchemin for ex)

bergfors - elias - rolston
parise - zajac - langs
zubrus -madden - pando
rupp - holik - clarkson


switch zubrus and langs around if need be.
but i think some good experienced creative players in elias and rolson around bergfors should give him room to score some goals and get into the swing of things quickly.
and i believe this second line has shown chemistry before

If you mean people by one or two posters who are blinded by stats, then sure.

Elias - Rolston - Gionta
Parise - Zajac - Langenbrunner
Zubrus - Madden - Pandolfo
Rupp - Holik - Clarkson

Martin - Oduya
Salvador - Mottau
White - Greene

Rolston has the C by the all star break.

Noooo thanks. I trust Rolston has solid captain qualities, but if for some reason Langs gets stripped of it, wouldn't you think Madden would get it? And I'd much rather give Langs another year shot at it, 3 captains in 3 years? Nooo thanks.
