I would figure out top 7 D would be in no particular order: Kimmo, Coburn, Gus, Grossman, Schenn, Streit, & Mes (if healthy) Those who most likely are playing for the Phantoms unless they earn a spot - Gervais, Bourdon, Lauridsen, & Manning.
Gervais most likely will be put on waivers and sent down or snatched by another team.
Our D could look something like this:
Kimmo - Schenn Coburn - Grossman Streit - Gus/Mes
I think we all expect someone to get traded before the season starts. I just hope Homer doesn't give it away which may end up happening like when Gagne went to Tampa for garbage.
With all of the forwards we have, I also think someone else may get moved here as well.
Our top forwards, again in no order: Giroux, Hartnell, Lecavlier, Simmonds, Couturier, B Schenn, Voracek, Read Talbot, Rinaldo, Hall, Rosehill
Those potentially fighting for a spot - Laughton, Petr Straka, & Tye McGinn Wildcard - Gagne (will he be resigned)
Perhaps Homer can look to put together a package to offer St Louis for the rights to Alex Pietrangelo.
Piertangelo isn't going anywhere. the Blues dumped a damn good player in Perron today, pretty much a salary dump to resign Piertangelo. at this point I'm pretty content with the roster they have. Laughton needs to be on this club, wouldn't be against dumping Talbot, and still think 2 of Coburn,Mez, and Grossmann need to go. I would like to see someone like Mason Raymond brought in for the 3rd. line and PK.
