That's right. Six different goalies and over 45 skaters on the team that season. Thank you Rick Dudley.
Quite a collection of talent(?). And 'turd fans reminisce about the Dudley years....

I like Craig and I hope he is healthy. Put him between Oulett and Jokinen until Halpern returns and you have a decent 3rd line. then When Halpern returns drop him to the 4th line between Tarns and R2/Roberts and you still have him for the PP and PK when you need him. He is a real character guy and should fit what Barry wants to do.

Since when is Craig an effective center in the NHL, let alone on a scoring line? I have my doubts about him even making the team. Seriously. This guy had like one good 30-game stretch. I know about the injuries he's had to overcome, but in no way am I penciling him onto any line.

Agreed. That would be premature IMO. And I dare you find a bigger Ryan Craig supporter over the years than me. Ok... maybe Jay Feaster...

I agree with the description, but you may want to pencil him in anyways. Unless he is injured, thats a 800k salary down in Norfolk.

Yeah... he's likely at Top 13 forward. Pressbox and 4th line winger. Some PP.

But he doesn't have the wheels for centering a 3rd or 4th line.

That is scary and the scariest part was Cloutier had the best GAA of all 6 goalies

OK I do realize that Craigs wheels are not the best, but who centers the 3rd line until Halpern returns? Certainly not Roberts, Ward- very doubtful not even as good as Craig, Can Jokinen center? R2 or Tarns? I like the fact we are talking about the bottom lines rather than the top 2 but who centers the 3rd until Halpern returns?

If Craig's healthy, he SHOULD be penciled into a non-popcorn role. But he SHOULDN'T be counted out to fill that spot because you just can't count on him being healthy. In that case, the approach should be to sign him and have him available, but have enough options where he's not a necessity - which has been done.
