The CBJ Real Life Roster Challenge

So hindsight is 20/20, but this is the internet so we can do whatever we want. Here is the mission, should you choose to accept it. Create the ideal 2012-13 roster. But here are the tricks:

1. They have to all be or have been CBJ property. So Rick Nash is okay, but Sidney Crosby is not.
2. Consider their current playing status. Tugnutt was awesome but he’s kinda old now.
3. You cannot choose guys who were traded for each other. So, you cannot choose Rick Nash AND Brandon Dubinsky. Or a guy who was traded for a draft pick and the guy who was drafted by that pick.

Merry picking! Send your rosters to dannie@strait-jackets.net and I’ll share them here. Then we can sit around and drink copious amounts of wine and cry about what might have been.
