Liindy Ruff definatly has some tough decisions to make with the season around the corner. Training camp is underway for the rookies and youngens while the big guns loin the fun this Saturday at HSBC for a free practice at 10am. There are 2-3 opening spots do deal before the season starts and with Mair out 6 weeks or so with a hip injury there is definatly some openings. Ruff and Reiger sound like excited school girls over 6'8 Dman Tyler Myers and it will be interesting if they give him a look right out of training camp. Kennedy another young star looks very promising and will definatly get a shot at some point in the season but I think he has a real shot at a roster spot by opening day at least for the begiining of the season. Here is how I see the lines playing out for the beginning of the season.
Vanek Connelly Stafford
CMac Roy Pominvile
Grier Hecht Paille
Kaleta Gaustad Ellis
reserves...Kennedy, Mair(hurt), McCormick (portland most likely to start)
reserve...Paestch, Weber, Meyers will have a shot at some point this year but really, IDK
Some variation of the lines...just my prediction.
