    good, put him with gill on the 3rd line

    Belak, Pilar, Colaiacovo, White, Harrison, Woz, Kronwall are the d-men lefover to fill the remaining 2 spots, and possibly a cozy press box seat (if there are 3 healthy scratches allowed one shold be a d-man).

    Belak has a simple game that shouldn’t hurt the team too much if he plays on an irregular basis. plus he can play forward in a pinch.

    White and harrison appear to be the most impressive of the lot. So it makes sense to keep them in the lineup, and pot woz and kronwall with the marlies. Pilar will probably never lay in north america again. that leaves colaiacovo as the odd man out. he definetly deserves regular playing time, but not in leaftown.

    Good. All this talk of Colaiacovo being traded has scared me, and this makes it a little less likwely. As for the other RFAs, sign all of them except Pilar.

    and who will be on the second pairing?

  6. Francis10 says:

    This is all great if he plays again. Anyone know for sure when he is due back? I have heard rumors saying he isn’t ready and wont be ready until after training camp if he can ever play at all.

    Dammit this is gonna be confusing! Who do they play with McCabe? Coley and White both deserve time with an offensive d-man like them, and Kaberle-Kubina is etched in stone, so one of em is stick with Gill.

    I read last week he was symptom free and ready to go for training camp.
