In Topic: Line Predictions

22 August 2013 - 09:52 AM

Line predictions....my favorite game. I still think a trade is coming, but with the roster we have now I see the lines looking like this:

 

Elias-Zajac-Ryder

Henrique-Josefson-Jagr

Clowe-Loktionov-Zubrus

Carter-Gionta-Bernier

 

Extra:Barch/Olesz

 

So far this is the only set of lines that is even close to making sense.  Why would PDB break up our 4th line, because he went out and got Olesz?  Olesz hasn't even played a game in the NHL since 2011-12, where he played all of 6 games for the Hawks, then was sent down to the AHL. In 2 seasons with the IceHogs he played a total of 64 games, and had 60 points (24g - 36a).  I understand he doesn't have to be a prolific scorer, but why break up the chemistry Carter, Gio, and Berny have to test a experiment?  I think he does well in camp, but ends up in the AHL.  

 

In my opinion, this is how the lines will look on opening night:

 

Elias-Zajac-Ryder

Clowe-Henrique-Jagr

Josefson-Loktionov-Zubrus

Carter-Gionta-Bernier

 

Extra:Barch/Olesz

 

 

However I do expect that there will be a lot of moving guys around to find chemistry.  How those lines look, we will just have to wait and see.
