We damn near let an entire AHL team walk away lol.


The only players that have a realistic chance of making the full-time squad are Dalpe and Nash.


This gives us a real sense at what our line-up may look like next year.


As it stands...


Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Elias Lindholm (hopefully)

Victor Rask - Tuomo Ruutu - Patrick Dwyer

Drayson Bowman - Riley Nash - Zac Dalpe

Kevin Westgarth


Other players that could see time: Brett Sutter, Jeremy Welsh, Jared Staal, Chris Terry, Nicolas Blanchard, and Zach Boychuk


Justin Faulk - Joni Pitkanen

Andrej Sekera - Tim Gleason

Ryan Murphy - Jay Harrison

Brett Bellemore


Other players that could see time: none


Cam Ward

Justin Peters


Other players that could see time: none

Never understood why JR didn't like Tim Brent. Also, LaRose should be signed back.

I think Brent's main goal was to be the power play quarterback, and since he couldn't do that they decided to let him walk.

As a person, Rosey is awesome. As a player, he is over the hill. If he is re-signed it needs to be for real cheap and his ass needs to stay on the fourth line.

Gotta agree with CP8789, I've enjoyed LaRose and he has in the past been great for our team, but I think it is time to move on.
