    NHL Network's Projected Lineup

    These are the foward lines made by the NHL Network. How do you think they did? And what changes should be made. Use the Hartford roster to make any replacement. Or just switch players to different lines.

    Krieder - Zibanejad - Zuccarello
    Namestnikov - Hayes - Buchnevich
    Vesey - Chytil - Fast
    Spooner - Anderson - McCleod

    Switch Chytil and Hayes. The rest is fine, but would probably rather see Spooner get a crack on the 2nd line before Namestnikov. Ideally no Mcleod but whatever. The ship has sailed on that already since they just re-signed him.

    We've spent that money for just-in-case (JIC) / "in case of emergency break glass" signings before, and I tend to think it's a JIC signing.
    i.e. In case the team gets pushed around, needs a reminder/reason to slap the sideboards with their sticks, and for particularly tough/nasty matchups.
    Whether it'll help or be futile is another matter.

    se above.

    I certainly don't want to see him on Andersson's wing, either.

    I'm not seeing them throw Chytil in a top 6 role as a rookie...maybe but end of year?

    3rd line with pp time seems like the sweet spot for him.

    Those two lines are pretty interchangeable. Chytil's line gets mostly OZ starts, Hayes' line mostly DZ. Plus Hayes' line will be used to shut down the opponent's scoring line.

    Bingo.

    I don't think I'd want Spooner on a line that is expected to be DZ first though.

    Yep, lovin this with youth injection. I would like to see Zucc playing with Kreider, they have a little chemistry. And Buch might like playing with Names.

    Meh, Spooner's a vet he'll be fine. You want a little extra D late in a close game you can bump Quickie up there.

    No way, we've seen what the KZB line can do. A new coach that won't shit all over Buch's confidence will make them even better.

    I’m good with this with Youth option for 4th.

    I'm hoping Ronning has a great showing at camp and we get to see him play at least during pre-season. A sparkle of offense on the 4th is better than McBlob.

    You know what's weird? I look at that lineup and think, "is there any combination of those names that doesn't make me want to vomit?" And then I remember that's exactly how I felt about the 05-06 lineup, before they went and broke a 7 year playoff drought. I mean, granted Henrik is much older now and we don't have the best player in the world in Jagr anymore, but I get this weird feeling the team will be surprisingly successful.

    The F group is actually not terrible. The D, though. Woof.

    I like this line-up. Just leave McLeod out all together. I like Fast with Anderson, hopefully that line would get more than 3 minutes a game though as well.

    Plus, I think Zucc helps Chytil more. He is a vet, and will stick up for Chytil if anyone tries to mess with him. Plus, Zucc likes to pass, so it may help Chytil score more goals.
