PPP Salary Cap Challenge-BCapp #2

Analysis of the team:

  • I built the team around a first line that could take on absolutely anything. With Giroux, Zetterberg, and Neal I would put that line against anything. I built, a really strong checking line with Brouwer (we all know his ability), Goc (many have shown his very, very good defensive play), and Shaw who has played great thus far in a defensive role (if he can't do it Thorburn or Smith-Pelly can pop into that role). The second line is honestly just another first line, but I guess it could be somewhat sheltered if you wanted. The third line is the epitome of a sheltered scoring line. Seriously, Pacioretty, RNH, Skinner as a third line!
  • On D I built it around the best (some would say second or third, but who cares) defender in the league once Lidstrom realizes he is over 40, in Zdeno Chara. The other pillar of my D is the up and coming Pietrangelo who is likely a future franchise Dman. To balance out the top 4 I have the top offensive defenseman Alex Edler playing with Chara, and defensive D-man Girardi playing with Pietrangelo. The third pair is made up of two quietly good defenseman. They can handle whatever you need, but with the guys ahead of them, won't even need to. For those of you who don't know Stefan Elliot he is a great prospect (IMHO) on the Colorado Avalanche. He has great offensive instincts and is developing well.
  • In net we have the best deal in the league, Jonathan Quick, and behind him an up and coming goalie Jhonas Enroth. He looked great in the AHL and is looking good in the NHL. He is used to being a backup in the NHL (0.917, and 2.70 GAA last year). is a fan community that allows members to post their own thoughts and opinions on the Toronto Maple Leafs and hockey in general.
