    Post Jakub Vrana

    Curious as to what you guys think of Vrana. Do you guys think he can potentially have a much better year and crack the 50pt range or he's still aways from that? Do you guys think he can realistically play on the 2nd line with Backstrom next year? Let me know what you think

    It comes down to him and Bura, who I would of assumed solidified the 2LW position by now, but alas, 2 years drafting hoping for a break out to only get snake bit both of them.

    This season will be the same as last, whoever wants it more between those two will get the 2L position, if they stay there most of the season I'd say 45-50 isn't to far fetched.

    Short answer is I don't see Vrana reaching 50 points next year.

    Even on the second line in the playoffs, he only got 8 points and isn't capitalizing much on what powerplay time he's been given. 35-40 points max in my opinion

    See Dvorak... I wouldn't expect much more than what that 36-44

    Yes, but you also have to consider that he was also limited to 11:56 a night during the playoffs while Backstrom was playing 16:53 not including PP time (20:37 including PP time). He may have played on the 2nd line, but he wasn't getting 2nd line minutes.

    I like the kid and I think he'll get his chance on the 2L. Burakovsky hasn't exactly shown he deserves a spot there so I guess it all comes down to who wants it more this year. If Vrana sticks there, I'd put him at 40 points. Possibly 45.
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Kapanen, Bjork, Athanasiou, A. Johnsson, Cirelli, Sheary, Foegele, Compher, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Shattenkirk, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Terry, Bertuzzi, Zykov, Hinostroza


    Goalies:
    Varlamov, Demko, Husso

    Taxi:
    Borgstrom, Sprong, Kyrou, Liljegren, Kravtsov, Bokk
