Yell maybe on the Islanders' side, it is. On TO's side it's Tavares for JVR, Bozak, Komarov, Plekanec and Polak. They lose a lot on the depth front. Let's just hope for them that none of the big five get injured otherwise it could be tougher then anyone expects.
YEAH....I DUNNO MATLO777....IT REALLY SEEMS LIKE AN I'LL THOUGHT OUT COMMENT TO ME.
What????? Leafs have good depth on wing, the reason they did attempt to resign JVR and Komarov. Johnson, Kapanen and Grundstrom look ready for full time NHL spots. What are Isles thinking spending 11m on three LWers Ladd, Komarov and Martin. Gee Leafs five LWers Hyman, Marleau, Johnson, Grundstrom and Leivo make about 11.5m
- I don't think we could have paid Bozak $5,000,000 to play on our 4th line....
- I don't think we could have paid Komarov $3,000,000 to sit in the press box all playoffs....
- I don't think we could have paid Martin $2,500,000 to sit in the press box every game from December onward....
- I don't think we could have paid Polak $1,100,000 to watch Connor Carrick from the press box every game....
Tavares > Bozak (especially on defense)
Johnsson > JVR (especially on defense)
Kapanen > Komarov (especially on offense)
Lindholm > Plekanec (I think everyone is though)
Carrick > Polak (especially when they have to move)
And then we still have all these guys legitimately fighting for spots:
- Borgman, LD
- Rosen, LD
- Marincin, LD
- Ozhiganov, RD
- Holl, RD
- Liljegren, RD
- Leivo, RW
- Grundstrom, RW
- Engvall, LW
- T.Moore, LW
- Jooris, C
- Gauthier, C
- Sparks, G
- Pickard, G
- McEhlinney, G
I feel bad though - there are only 1-2 roster spots up for grabs.....
