New Rosterbation

This will totally solve all the Red Wings problems forever and is totally feasible except for those pesky NTC's and reality getting in the way.

Step 1: Trade Franzen, Kindl and maybe a pick for next year to Buffalo for Tyler Myers.

Step 2: Sign Matt Niskanen to a X year, $5 million per year contract

Here are your lines. LW, C and RW

1) Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Abdelkader (Two Pianists and a Piano Mover Line)

2) Nyquist, Weiss, Tatar (Euro Twins Mark II Plus a Yank)

3) Miller, Helm, Jurco ("We needed SOMEONE who could score on this line" Line)

4) TBD

Your Defensive Pairings (LD, RD)

1) Kronwall, Tyler

2) Ericsson, Niskanen

3) Smith, DeKeyser

Lashoff is your #7

Notes: I'm not terribly thrilled about "demoting" DeKeyser either, but I think the Smith/DDK line is strong enough that if one of the higher up pairings needed a rest, maybe after a long PP chance, that Smith/DDK could eat up those minutes. Or you can pull back on minutes for the Top 4 and keep everyone a bit more rested and energized.

The 4th line you could have an All Centers Line with Andersson, Gleandening and Sheahan. However, you do have about 6 million in cap space still available with this plan, so you could go after Alfredsson or Iginla or Hemsky. If I had to scoot someone from the bottom 3, I'd honestly try to find someone to give me something for Andersson. I think he just gets pushed out by Sheahan and (ugh) Gleandening, much like Emmerton did.

There you have it, your 2015 Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings
