NHL Re-Draft line combinations, pairings, reviews
Take a look at re-drafted team line combinations and Dave Lozo's review of each squad.
After the Re-draft was conducted, each GM submitted their line combinations, defense pairings and goalie pecking order. Below are the lineups for all 30 teams:

Edmonton Oilers (GM: Bradley Holland)

Forwards
Scott Hartnell - Sidney Crosby - Dany Heatley
Ryan Malone - Paul Gaustad - Chris Stewart
Justin Abdelkader - Martin Hanzal - Patrick Eaves
Tim Brent - Darren Helm - Zack Stortini
Scratches: Jordan Schroeder
Defensemen
Brian Campbell - Tobias Enstrom
Sheldon Souray - Cody Franson
Wade Redden - Deryk Engelland
Scratches: Mike Lundin, Yannick Weber
Goalies
Anders Lindback
Mike Smith

Review: The refrain, "I need to take a goaltender," could be heard during the first two hours of the draft. When the Oilers finally grabbed one, it was Lindback, who has been terrific as backup but has never been a No. 1. But with Crosby finally surrounded by elite wingers, who cares? This team will be a contender and extremely fun to watch. Also, Redden makes his way back to the NHL as part of a solid group of defenders.

Colorado Avalanche (GM: Mike Blinn)

Forwards
Michael Grabner - Mike Fisher - Corey Perry
Mason Raymond - Bryan Little - Tomas Fleischmann
Ryan Jones - David Steckel - Brett Sterling
Matt Frattin - Michal Handzus - Ben Smith
Scratches: Jordan Caron, Patrick Wiercioch
Defensemen
Dustin Byfuglien - Brooks Orpik
Trevor Daley - Niklas Hjalmarsson
John Erskine - Mark Stuart
Scratches: Alexander Sulzer
Goalies
Michal Neuvirth
Antero Niittymaki

Review: The Avalanche aren't very strong down the middle, but they have one of the best defensive corps in the newly designed League. The top line of Grabner, Fisher and Perry are deadly, but there's not too much depth after that. Neuvirth and Niittymaki will likely battle for playing time with coach Blinn looking for one to emerge as the starter.

Florida Panthers (GM: Corey Masisak)

Forwards
Alex Ovechkin - David Krejci - Marian Hossa
Logan Couture - Joe Pavelski - Tyler Ennis
Blake Comeau - Marc Savard - Patric Hornqvist
Andrew Cogliano - Ryan Johansen - Joe Colborne
Scratches: Drayson Bowman - Quinton Howden
Defensemen
Brad Stuart - Anton Volchenkov
Josh Gorges - Chris Butler
Kevin Klein - Mike Weaver
Scratches: David Rundblad
Goalies
Jonathan Bernier
Nikolai Khabibulin

Review: It's tough to find a better crop of forwards. The second line of Couture, Pavelski and Ennis rival many of these new teams' top lines. Unfortunately, the blue line is a weakness. Gorges is coming off a major knee injury, and Butler was shipped out of Buffalo after last season. With Bernier and Khabibulin, the Panthers will be trying to win a lot of games 6-5 this season.

New York Islanders (GM: Emily Kaplan)

Forwards
Milan Michalek - Evgeni Malkin - Alexandre Burrows
Jason Blake - Dainius Zubrus - Jason Pominville
Gabriel Landeskog - Manny Malhotra - Jordan Eberle
Kyle Beach - Peter Regin - Ryan Shannon
Scratches: James Wright, Sven Baertschi
Defensemen
Jay Bouwmeester - Eric Brewer
Andrew Ference - P.K. Subban
Fedor Tyutin - Andrew Alberts
Scratches: Alexander Urbom
Goalies
Antti Niemi
Al Montoya

Review:
There's nothing about this team that jumps out, but there's a lot of young potential on the roster. Eberle and Landeskog are first-line talent playing on the third line, and Subban on the second D pairing is a nice luxury for the team. With a Stanley Cup champion goaltender in Niemi, the Islanders have a chance to crack the playoffs for the first time in years.

Ottawa Senators (GM: Frank Marrone)

Forwards
James van Riemsdyk - Patrick Marleau - Cal Clutterbuck
James Neal - Shawn Horcoff - Ales Kotalik
Max Pacioretty - Gregory Campbell - Radek Dvorak
Daniel Winnik - Darroll Powe - Colton Orr
Scratches: Stephane Da Costa, Brad Richardson, Oscar Moller
Defensemen
Jack Johnson - Robyn Regehr
Stephane Robidas - Roman Hamrlik
Shaone Morrisonn - Kurt Sauer
Goalies
Roberto Luongo
Brian Elliott

Review: Marrone built around his goaltender, and he built well. His six defensemen are solid from top to the bottom, and the top line is a genuine scoring threat. If the Senators can find some secondary scoring, they could be a threat in the Northeast Division.

Winnipeg Jets (GM: Matt Cubeta)

Forwards
Ryane Clowe - Pavel Datsyuk - Nikolai Kulemin
Ville Leino - Brandon Dubinsky - Todd Bertuzzi
Bryan Bickell - Peter Mueller - Mattias Tedenby
Daniel Carcillo - Scott Nichol - Jannik Hansen
Scratches: J-P Dumont, Rob Schremp
Defensemen
Alexander Edler - Drew Doughty
Brett Clark - Dan Girardi
Rob Scuderi - Adam McQuaid
Scratches: Nicklas Grossman
Goalies
Corey Crawford
Mathieu Garon

Review: In their first year back in the League, the Jets have a championship-caliber squad. They're deep on the back end and have two legitimate scoring lines. Crawford was a goal away from getting out of the first round last season and could be the backstop for a Winnipeg team with Cup aspirations.

Columbus Blue Jackets (GM: Deven Persaud)

Forwards
Rick Nash - Jonathan Toews - Nathan Horton
Steve Sullivan - Andy McDonald - Kyle Okposo
Jason Chimera - Kyle Turris - Nick Palmieri
James Sheppard - Samuel Pahlsson - Zach Boychuk
Scratches: Mikkel Boedker, Darryl Boyce
Defensemen
Marc Staal - Dennis Wideman
Braydon Coburn - Ian White
Marc-Andre Gragnani - Jeff Finger
Scratches: Andy Sutton
Goalies
Tuukka Rask
Jonas Gustavsson

Review: Neither of the Jackets' goaltenders have been full - time starters in the League, but there are plenty of GMs who covet Rask. Now that he's out of the shadow of Tim Thomas, he'll get his chance to be a No. 1 in Columbus. Nash was one of the few players who didn't have to sell his home and uproot his life with two months' notice.

New Jersey Devils (GM: Adam Kimelman)

Forwards
Tomas Holmstrom - Nicklas Backstrom - Mikael Samuelsson
Jeremy Morin - Paul Stastny - Michael Ryder
Maxime Talbot - Nik Antropov - Adam Burish
Jody Shelley - Mike Zigomanis - Kyle Clifford
Scratches: Kevin Porter, Ryan Strome
Defensemen
Alex Goligoski - Ed Jovanovski
Sergei Gonchar - Joe Corvo
Nick Leddy - Brad Lukowich
Scratches: Jake Gardiner
Goalies
Martin Brodeur
Martin Biron

Review: Brodeur stays in New Jersey, and he's got a new top line of three Swedes playing in front of him. There's plenty of experience in the team's top - four defensemen, and lots of depth among their centers. The Devils look like they're headed back to the playoffs with this team.

Toronto Maple Leafs (GM: Brian Hunter)

Forwards
Daniel Sedin - Mikko Koivu - David Jones
Andrei Kostitsyn - Saku Koivu - Chad LaRose
Tyler Seguin - Lauri Korpikoski - Eric Fehr
Kyle Brodziak - Patrice Cormier - Nino Niederreiter
Scratches: Tanner Glass, Ian Schultz
Defensemen
Mike Green - Jaroslav Spacek
Kevin Shattenkirk - Andrej Sekera
Ryan O'Byrne - Oliver Ekman-Larsson
Scratches: Marco Scandella
Goalies
Jonathan Quick
Alex Auld

Review: The only thing better than one Koivu is two. They will try to resurrect Toronto along with Sedin, who will play without his brother for the first time in his life. If he can move past his sibling detachment syndrome, there's enough talent on the blue line and in net to get the Leafs to the playoffs.

Minnesota Wild (GM: Dave Lozo)

Forwards
Martin Erat - Matt Duchene - Thomas Vanek
Ryan Smyth - Mike Ribeiro - Blake Wheeler
Sean Bergenheim - Ryan O'Reilly - Patrick Kaleta
Shawn Thornton - Josh Bailey - Brad Staubitz
Scratches: Tim Stapleton
Defensemen
Shea Weber - John-Michael Liles
Pavel Kubina - Rostislav Klesla
Mark Eaton - Oskars Bartulis
Scratches: Mark Fayne, Ben Lovejoy
Goalies
Kari Lehtonen
Brent Johnson

Review: What the Wild lack in size down the middle they make up for with a supremely talented group of defensemen. Weber was the first blueliner picked in the draft, and he'll try to make life easy on Lehtonen, who has shown flashes of brilliance in his career. If the Wild can score, they will be deadly.

St. Louis Blues (GM: Eric Lipschutz)

Forwards
Ilya Kovalchuk - Stephen Weiss - Brenden Morrow
David Booth - Colin Wilson - Chris Kunitz
Matt Cooke - Jamie Langenbrunner - B.J. Crombeen
Viktor Stalberg - Benoit Pouliot - Jared Boll
Scratches: Ryan Bourque, Colin Fraser
Defensemen
Kris Letang - Matt Greene
Kurtis Foster - Chris Campoli
Mike Commodore - Johnny Oduya
Scratches: Kent Huskins
Goalies
Niklas Backstrom
Josh Harding

Review: Backstrom and Harding stick together but do so with the Blues. There's lots of talent on the forward lines and plenty of skill on the blue line. There's not too much in the way of size and grit back there, but there's plenty up front with Cooke, Crombeen and Boll.

Carolina Hurricanes (GM: Dan Rosen)

Forwards
Taylor Hall - Patrick Sharp - Steven Stamkos
Clarke MacArthur - Eric Belanger - Teddy Purcell
Jamie Benn - Brandon Sutter - Matt Halischuk
Mike Brown - Mikael Backlund - Jay McClement
Scratches: Teemu Hartikainen, John Mitchell
Defensemen
Andrei Markov - Jeff Schultz
Dan Hamhuis - Luke Schenn
Willie Mitchell - Carl Gunnarsson
Scratches: Andreas Nodl
Goalies
Cam Ward
Jason LaBarbera

Review: Lots of depth with the top three lines. Hamhuis as part of the second pairing is pretty good, too. Throw in the fact Ward is sticking in Raleigh, this team has enough talent in all areas to contend for a title.

Calgary Flames (GM: John Kreiser)

Forwards
Loui Eriksson - Ryan Getzlaf - Phil Kessel
Andrew Brunette - Ray Whitney - Nick Spaling
Steve Ott - Frans Nielsen - Chris Neil
Chris Thorburn - Eric Tangradi - Tim Jackman
Scratches: Trevor Gillies, Colton Gillies, Paul Thompson
Defensemen
Lubomir Visnovsky - Toni Lydman
Carlo Colaiacovo - Ryan McDonagh
Karl Alzner - Greg Zanon
Scratches: None
Goalies
James Reimer
Dan Ellis

Review: This is what happens when a third-round pick is spent on a third-line center. The forward lines after the top grouping is suspect and scoring should be a problem for the Flames. The d - men are solid, but a lot will be expected of the youngster Reimer. The post-Iginla era in Calgary could be facing a tough Year One.

Dallas Stars (GM: Brian Compton)

Forwards
Johan Franzen - Henrik Zetterberg - Shane Doan
Marco Sturm - David Legwand  - Anthony Stewart
Niclas Bergfors - Derek Stepan - Adam Hall
Matt Martin - Nate Thompson - Travis Moen
Scratches: Marcel Goc, Jerry D'Amigo
Defensemen
Chris Pronger - Francois Beauchemin
Jordan Leopold - Jonathan Ericsson
Francois Bouillon - Derek Meech
Goalies
Craig Anderson
Rick DiPietro
Scratches: Jacob Markstrom

Review: Compton keeps Franzen and Zetterberg on the same team and puts them with Doan to make up one of the most talented lines in the League. Pronger's health will be key. The Stars were the only team to take three goalies, but with DiPietro's injury history, it's not a bad idea to have a top prospect in Markstrom waiting in the wings.

New York Rangers (GM: Darryl Haberman)

Forwards
Jakub Voracek - Joe Thornton - Jaromir Jagr
Daymond Langkow - Matthew Lombardi - Radim Vrbata
Daniel Paille - Chris Kelly - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
Paul Bissonnette - Jacob Josefson - Brandon Yip
Scratches: Erik Condra, Mattias Ritola
Defensemen
Mark Streit - Kimmo Timonen
Victor Hedman - Bryan McCabe
Tom Gilbert - Radek Martinek
Scratches: Brennan Evans
Goalies
Steve Mason
Semyon Varlamov

Review: Jagr is back on Broadway with a team that boasts a lot of speed and talent along the blue line. Streit can likely avoid moving since he was an Islander last season. A lot will be expected of Mason, who is replacing a three-time Vezina finalist in Henrik Lundqvist. This will be one of the more fun teams to watch this season.

Buffalo Sabres (GM: Bradley Holland)

Forwards
Patrik Elias - Jason Spezza - Ales Hemsky
Scottie Upshall - Valtteri Filppula - Daniel Alfredsson
Jeff Halpern - Dominic Moore - Jordin Tootoo
Ben Eager- Zenon Konopka - Jamie McGinn
Scratches: Max Sauve, Zenon Konopka
Defensemen
Keith Yandle - Tyler Myers
Zbynek Michalek - Brent Burns
Mark Fistric - Brendan Smith
Scratches: TJ Brodie
Goalies
Ryan Miller
Jhonas Enroth

Review: This is easily the scariest team to play against in the League, but it's only because the bottom two lines are loaded with fighters and players who will destroy you if your head is down. The top-four on D is the best in the business, but this is what happens when you don't take a forward until the fifth round. At least the Sabres' goaltenders can show the new guys around the city.

Montreal Canadiens (GM: Mike Blinn)

Forwards
Evander Kane - Patrice Bergeron - Bobby Ryan
Nathan Gerbe - Matt Cullen - Joel Ward
Bobby Butler - Tyler Bozak - Brian Boyle
Andy Miele - Mike Comrie - Matt Calvert
Scratches: Tomas Tatar, Matt Stajan
Defensemen
Ryan Suter - Tim Gleason
Matt Carle - Andy Greene
Derek Morris - Steven Kampfer
Scratches: Adrian Aucoin
Goalies
Jaroslav Halak
Robin Lehner

Review: Welcome back, Jaro. However, Canadiens will have to welcome an ex-Bruin in Bergeron into the family. The Habs have four pretty good lines. If their defensemen play well, the Canadiens are a serious playoff contender.

Chicago Blackhawks (GM: Corey Masisak)

Forwards
Erik Cole - Ryan Kesler - Martin Havlat
Sergei Kostitsyn - Tomas Plekanec - Teemu Selanne
Troy Brouwer - Marcus Johansson - Michael Frolik
Jonathan Huberdeau - Zac Dalpe - Jiri Hudler
Scratches: Erik Christensen, Luke Adam
Defensemen
Sami Salo - Jamie McBain
Michael Sauer - Keith Ballard
Adam Larsson - Jonathon Blum
Scratches: Keith Aulie
Goalies
Tim Thomas
Ray Emery

Review: Masisak's strategy of loading up with forwards and ignoring defensemen (because that's the best way to win in NHL '12, according to him) is on full display here. Salo isn't a No. 1 anymore and Ballard was a healthy scratch a lot last season. But as long Thomas maintains his form from last season, it may not matter.

Los Angeles Kings (GM: Emily Kaplan)

Forwards
Jussi Jokinen - Brad Richards - Ryan Callahan
Wojtek Wolski - Tuomo Ruutu - Kris Versteeg
Ruslan Fedotenko - Jim Slater - Mike Knuble
Mats Zuccarello - Boyd Gordon - Arron Asham
Scratches: Adam Henrique
Defensemen
Ryan Whitney - Joni Pitkanen
Tom Poti - Anton Babchuk
Brett Lebda - Barret Jackman
Scratches: Raphael Diaz, Chris Summers
Goalies
Tomas Vokoun
Jean-Sebastien Giguere

Review: Kaplan's strategy to go cheap in the early rounds with Vokoun led to her being able to afford the contracts of Richards and just about every Rangers' left wing. There's experience on the back end, too. There's a nice mix of talent and grit here.

Phoenix Coyotes (GM: Frank Marrone)

Forwards
Simon Gagne - Tim Connolly - Jarome Iginla
Guillaume Latendresse - Jason Arnott - David Backes
Kristian Huselius - Tyler Kennedy - Scott Parse
Alexei Ponikarovsky - Matt Hendricks - Cody McLeod
Scratches: Linus Omark, Angelo Esposito
Defensemen
Niklas Kronwall - Zach Bogosian
Sean O'Donnell - Michael Del Zotto
Alec Martinez - Johnny Boychuk
Scratches: Davis Drewiskie
Goalies
Ilya Bryzgalov
Devan Dubnyk

Review: Here's another team with some question marks on defense. Del Zotto wasn't good enough to stay with the Rangers for parts of last season, but he's a No. 4 in Phoenix. But the Coyotes have two solid lines and they've brought back Bryzgalov and his huge new contract.

Nashville Predators (GM: Matt Cubeta)

Forwards
Zach Parise - Jeff Carter - Michael Cammalleri
Rene Bourque - Artem Anisimov - Brad Marchand
Chris Higgins - Jarret Stoll - Pascal Dupuis
Vinny Prospal - Mark Letestu - Nikolay Zherdev
Scratches: John Madden, Chris Conner
Defensemen
Alex Pietrangelo - Dan Boyle
Grant Clitsome - Marek Zidlicky
Keaton Ellerby - Steve Montador
Scratches: Clayton Stoner
Goalies
Jonas Hiller
Brian Boucher

Review: The line of Parise, Carter and Cammalleri is arguably the best in the League. Having Prospal on the fourth line isn't so bad, either. If the Predators get anything out of their defensemen, led by Boyle, they could be on their way to a Stanley Cup Final.

Anaheim Ducks (GM: Deven Persaud)

Forwards
Alexander Semin - Anze Kopitar - Claude Giroux
Nikita Filatov - Mikhail Grabovski - Matt D'Agostini
Curtis Glencross - Antoine Vermette - Joffrey Lupul
Luca Caputi - Zach Hamill - Jack Skille
Scratches: Richard Panik, David Desharnais
Defensemen
Nikita Nikitin - Dion Phaneuf
Cam Barker - Erik Gudbranson
Kris Russell - Thomas Hickey
Scratches: Brandon Gormley
Goalies
Cory Schneider
Evgeni Nabokov

Review: Schneider is no longer Luongo's understudy and will get a chance to be a starter in Anaheim. With Nabokov there to help, it's a great situation. Ducks fans, however, will have to get used to the site of Kopitar in their jersey. The mercurial Filatov will open the season on the second line. He'll need to harness his talent for the Ducks to succeed.

Pittsburgh Penguins (GM: Adam Kimelman)

Forwards
David Perron - Eric Staal - Devin Setoguchi
Brett Connolly - Mike Richards - MIlan Hejduk
Torrey Mitchell - Rich Peverley - Chuck Kobasew
Raffi Torres - Blair Betts - Sean Couturier
Scratches: Cody McCormick
Defensemen
Hal Gill - Kevin Bieksa
Tim Erixon - Mike Komisarek
Filip Kuba - Christopher Tanev
Scratches: Bryan Allen, Jared Cowen
Goalies
Sergei Bobrovsky
Ondrej Pavelec

Review: The Pens lose Sidney Crosby, but getting a talent like Staal will soften the blow. Setoguchi and Richards are on their third team in two months, but it's quite the stacked team offensively. Much like Masisak's squads, Kimelman's Pens will be looking to win high-scoring affairs. If Bobrovsky and Pavelec play well, the Pens could be in for a big year.

Detroit Red Wings (GM: Brian Hunter)

Forwards
Steve Downie - Vincent Lecavalier - Patrick Kane
Brian Rolston - Brayden Schenn - Justin Williams
Mike Rupp - David Moss - Tomas Kopecky
Colin Greening - Vernon Fiddler - Drew Miller
Scratches: Alexandre Giroux, Dana Tyrell
Defensemen
Christian Ehrhoff - Henrik Tallinder
Tomas Kaberle - Milan Jurcina
Dmitry Kulikov - Roman Polak
Scratches: Jakub Kindl
Goalies
Jimmy Howard
Jose Theodore

Review: There's lots of Cup experience on this team, nothing new for the Red Wings. Howard stays put, but loses Lidstrom. He still has a pretty good top pairing with Ehrhoff and Tallinder defending the zone. Rolston finding his scoring touch and Williams staying healthy will be key for the Red Wings.

Philadelphia Flyers (GM: Dave Lozo)

Forwards
Milan Lucic - Jeff Skinner - Brad Boyes
RJ Umberger - Scott Gomez - Lee Stempniak
Taylor Pyatt - Derick Brassard - Evgeny Dadonov
Eric Boulton - Jesse Winchester - Derek Dorsett
Scratches: Jerred Smithson, Derek Joslin
Defensemen
Mattias Ohlund - Brent Seabrook
John Carlson - Jan Hejda
Ron Hainsey - Michal Rozsival
Scratches: Adam Pardy
Goalies
Carey Price
Braden Holtby

Review: The Flyers solved their goaltending problems again by drafting Price. But after the top line of Lucic, Skinner and Boyes, there's a lot of question marks offensively. Gomez is coming off the worst season of his career, and the fourth line looks like it will be into old time hockey. It'll be up the very deep defensive corps to push the Flyers over the top.

Washington Capitals (GM: Eric Lipschutz)

Forwards
Danny Briere - Travis Zajac - Marian Gaborik
Nick Foligno - T.J. Oshie - Dustin Brown
TJ Galiardi - Olli Jokinen - Alex Kovalev
Bill Sweatt - Sam Gagner - TJ Hensick
Scratches: Joakim Lindstrom, Brock Trotter
Defensemen
Andrej Meszaros - Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Chris Phillips - Marc-Andre Bergeron
Matt Gilroy - Matt Carkner
Scratches: Justin Braun
Goalies
Marc-Andre Fleury
Chris Mason

Review: The Caps have good balance up front and some scoring presence on the third line. The team also boasts the most Marc(hyphen) names in the League. There's plenty of upside with this team and they could still be a threat in the Southeast in the post-Ovechkin era.

Tampa Bay Lightning (GM: Dan Rosen)

Forwards
Danny Cleary - Henrik Sedin - Brian Gionta
PA Parenteau - Jordan Staal - Magnus Paajarvi
Tom Kostopoulos - Dave Bolland - Vladimir Sobotka
Brandon Prust - Maxim Lapierre - Craig Adams
Scratches: Philippe Dupuis
Defensemen
Nicklas Lidstrom - Erik Karlsson
Paul Martin - Douglas Murray
Kyle Quincey - Nick Schultz
Scratches: Randy Jones, Jay Harrison
Goalies
Dwayne Roloson
Peter Budaj

Review: You can never have too many centers in this game, but the Lightning do. Adams or Lapierre could be trade bait if this was real life, but instead, it's an embarrassment of checking-center riches. Roloson stays put, as did a lot of goalies in the redraft. Sedin leaves his brother behind and will try to find chemistry with his new linemates.

San Jose Sharks (GM: John Kreiser)

Forwards
Matt Moulson - John Tavares - Martin St. Louis
Drew Stafford - Patrik Berglund - Blake Geoffrion
Nazem Kadri - Brendan Morrison - Eric Nystrom
Cal O'Reilly - Marty Reasoner - Cody Hodgson
Scratches: DJ King
Defensemen
Mark Giordano - Colin White
James Wisniewski - Travis Hamonic
Luca Sbisa - Ryan Ellis
Scratches: Mike Mottau, Bruno Gervais
Goalies
Pekka Rinne
Johan Hedberg

Review: Welcome to Long Island West. Tavares, Moulson, Reasoner, Hamonic... the new Sharks have more Islanders than the current Islanders. The goaltending situation is solid with Rinne, and there's plenty of toughness along the blue line. As long as the Isla... Sharks find consistent scoring, the team is a contender.

Vancouver Canucks (GM: Brian Compton)

Forwards
Dustin Penner - Brooks Laich - Wayne Simmonds
Andrew Ladd - Mike Santorelli - David Clarkson
Jochen Hecht - Alexander Burmistrov - Trent Hunter
Mathieu Darche - Gilbert Brule - Matt Bradley
Defensemen
Zdeno Chara - Erik Johnson
Andy MacDonald - Jason Demers
Matt Niskanen - Theo Peckham
Scratches: Ryan Wilson, Andreas Lilja, Ryan Parent
Goalies
Henrik Lundqvist
Scott Clemmensen

Review: The Canucks lose Luongo but pick up another Vezina-worthy goaltender in Lundqvist. The team is Sedin-less and doesn't exactly boast a true gamebreaker up front. The blue line is strong, so it looks like Lundqvist will leave one team in the Rangers that had a hard time scoring for another one on the other side of the continent.

Boston Bruins (GM: Darryl Haberman)

Forwards
Alex Tanguay - Derek Roy - Pierre-Marc Bouchard
Rostislav Olesz - Alex Steen - Colby Armstrong
Sean Avery - Steve Reinprecht - Niklas Hagman
Marcus Kruger - Lars Eller - Carter Ashton
Scratches: Matt Kassian, Joey Hishon
Defensemen
Duncan Keith - Cam Fowler
Dennis Seidenberg - Marc Methot
Cory Sarich - Calvin de Haan
Scratches: Ladislav Smid
Goalies
Miikka Kiprusoff
Jack Campbell

Review: The Blackhawks had to tear up their Cup-winning team of 2010, but this is ridiculous. Only Seidenberg remains from the 2011 championship team, but the cupboard has been restocked with Keith, Kiprusoff and Roy. The new-look Bruins aren't nearly as deep as they were a year ago, but not many teams are in this redrawn NHL.

Note: NHL.com's Fantasy Re-Draft was conducted in July and Rick Rypien was selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Rypien, who passed away on Aug. 15, has been removed from the roster and replaced with Philippe Dupuis.


Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
