Leafs Line up this year

(1/19) > >>

I am speculating on what the line up will probably be this year.  I am hoping that Komisarek can be the elite tough shutdown dman that Burke was probably expecting and can take top pairing duties with Phaneuf. 

On fight nights swap out Boyce or Kadri for Orr or Rosehill.


Joffrey Lupul ($4.250m) / Tim Connolly ($4.750m) / Phil Kessel ($5.400m)
Nikolai Kulemin ($2.350m) / Mikhail Grabovski ($2.900m) / Clarke MacArthur ($3.250m)
Nazem Kadri ($1.720m) / Tyler Bozak ($1.500m) / Colby Armstrong ($3.000m)
Darryl Boyce ($0.700m) / Philippe Dupuis ($0.650m) / Mike Brown ($0.736m)
Colton Orr ($1.000m) / Jay Rosehill ($0.600m)

Dion Phaneuf ($6.500m) / Mike Komisarek ($4.500m)
John-Michael Liles ($4.200m) / Luke Schenn ($3.500m)
Keith Aulie ($0.733m) / Cody Franson ($0.800m)
Matt Lashoff ($0.600m)

James Reimer ($1.800m) / Jonas Gustavsson ($1.350m)

BUYOUTS: Darcy Tucker ($1.000m)

I think I might be in the minority, but i actually think Kadri starts the year in the A.

I was kind wondering that as well but I am hoping he can get some minutes in the NHL this year to see what he can do.

You're missing Gunnarsson - there's no way he starts the year in the A, unlike Rosehill, who probably will.

I'd have Gunnarsson ahead of Lashoff (who may have to clear waivers to the AHL if all are healthy to start the season and they don't want to carry 8 dmen)

I doubt Rosehill will stay up if Orr is good to go.

Kadri, Boyce & Dupuis may have an edge for a spot but will fight it out with Caputi, Frattin, Colborne (who I doubt will make the NHL for more than a cup of coffee this season), Zigomanis, Hamilton and maybe Crabb. I also haven't given up on them trying to get a 4th line center.
