Opening Night If Roster Stays as Is

Created by: BJ_Lover
Team: 2022-23 Columbus Blue Jackets
Initial Creation Date: Aug. 5, 2022
Published: Aug. 5, 2022
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
Johnson, Chinakhov (waiver exempt), Foudy (non-waiver exempt but already on AHL Roster) start season in the AHL for some development as the number of roster players we have is too large and we would lose players to waivers to have it any other way.

I believe that any of the top 3 centers could realistically slot into any of the top 3 roles, but think that Boone playing his netfront game with Johnny and Laine on the ice is dangerous.

Tex was fantastic with Kuraly and Robinson last year but he deserves a top 6 shot and Danforth was just as good slotting into that 4th line role when Tex was gone last year.

Very excited for Marchenko to join the roster and think that Gus would be a good linemate for Sillinger and Marchenko as they grow into the anchors for a future second line.

Marchenko can abosolutely develop into a PP threat but I have him as the next man to slot into one of the units currently.

Blankenburg should rotate him into the lineup. Since this is my prediction, I left him as a scratch but wouldn't mind seeing him worked into the lineup as the 3rd pairing LD even though its his off hand.

Jiricek stays in Czech Republic and may come over after the season but does not burn the first year of his ELC. Mateychuk and Svozil stay put as well where Svozil feeds Bedard some more and has his best year yet.

Gus gets moved at the deadline, Injuries happen, Johnson, Chinakhov, Foudy all make their ways to the big club by the end of the season.

Bold (Hopeful take) Marchenko finishes 4th in calder voting behind Beniers, Power, Sanderson

I would love to hear thoughts!

Almost agree. I'd just flip Marchenko and Nyquist.

Yeah this is pretty much how I see it all playing out too. I had marchenko on PP2 where Cole is and I had Gudbranson and Peeke swapped cause I cant see Jarmo paying Gudbranson 4 mil to play 3rd pair but if he does I see the defensive pairs playing similar TOIs so we dont run Zach down and get him injured like last year. Really like the team tbh and feel like we can surprise especially with Marcheko coming in and people don't know how good he is and we have great depth and physicality now. Should be a fun season.

Yeah Marchenko said he'd like to play LW and Gus can play either side so should be an easy fit.

I kinda think Marchanko might get PP1 time over Voracek. They need someone to fill in the high slot where Bjorkstrand was. Marchenko seems like their strongest RH shot to take passes off the RW boards from what I assume will be Gaudreau running the PP.

If he excels in camp and pre-season with his shot I don't see how he DOESN'T get a shot on PP1, if not then he'll be PP2 probs at the very worst. I'm really excited to see him playing, Calder here he comes

This team won't have any trouble scoring goals, that's for sure, but I don't have much faith in the defense or even really Elvis on preventing them. I'd rather be entertained by high-scoring games than boring low-event hockey, though. Can't wait to see how it all shakes out bwtween Traverse City for the kids, training camp, and the first few weeks of the season. The roles will probably be wildly different than what we expect.
