If HCDB wants to try the Staalkin line again, is this how it shakes up?
First line: Kunitz/Crosby/Dupuis First Defense pairing: Orpik/Letang
Second line: Neal/Staal/Malkin Second Defense pairing: Martin/Michalek
Third line: Cooke/Letestu/Kennedy Thrid Defense pairing: Depres/Lovejoy
Fourth line: Asham/Adams/Sullivan
Scratches and extra bodies: Tangradi, Engelland and Jeffrey/Connor if they are resigned
Sid was working on a career year with those linemates before the injury so no complains there. Staal and Letestu could be changed around at center to keep the 3rd line intact if no Staalkin, and I think that Letestu is a better faceoff guy than Malkin. After last year's camp I really think that Depres is going to be a regular with the team.
I was ticked that Jagr didn't take our offer, heck he would have made 1.3mil in endorsements easily. After looking at our lines, though, I think we are in great shape without the risk of him causing distractions. Thoughts?
