First off, lets hope our Men in Blue can play this season like they did last year down the stretch...heck of a job. The CBJ played each night with passion and intensity. Good job on signing Bob, we need him! If Jarmo and Davidson want to build this team one brick at a time, then Bobrovsky is his own brick wall!
Who do the Jackets sign in Free Agency? Nathen Horton looks like a possibility. His strong play on the ice will help and continue with what the Jackets are doing. Playing good defensively and chipping in on offense has lead to Horton having a + rating.....we should def. resign Vinny Prospal. I don't think he will leave the West Coast, but Teemu Selanne would be an awesome veteran to sign, he has way more scoring potential than Vinny has. Jaromir Jagr is also a highly skilled Old Man they would provide some offense. Jarome Iginla can still put points on the board at the age of 36. David Clarkson is a possible 30 goal scorer that plays physical...Pierre Marc-Bouchard, Dustin Penner and also Derek Roy could all be guys that could contribute...
Lets say the Jackets sign Horton and resign Vinny...I'd like to see our lines look like this.
1. LW Vinny Prospal C Ryan Johanson RW Marion Gaborik
3. LW Nathen Horton C Brandon Dubinsky RW RJ Umberger
scratch: Jared Boll
Boone Jenner and newly drafted Kirby Rychel (played in KHL, father played in NHL) both have chance to make roster
scratch: Tim Erixon
#1 Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky
backup Curtis Mcelhinney
LETS GO JACKETS!!!
Our Springfield Team sure will be a good team with all the talent it will be stocked with!
