I've done this for 3 years now, with varying success, and mostly do it for entertainment... So flamers fire up your torches!
Granted, this is assuming Luke Schenn is signed for the start of the regular season, and banking on the roster staying as-is outside of that, but this is my lineup and predictions for each individual this year.
