Fresh Links: Let's Build A Lockout Team Edition

Coming soon to an AHL near you?

Okay. So clearly since you read the morning skate this am, you saw that we were discussing how to create a baller Providence team using the AHL's very strict veteran games limit rules. Only five guys with more than 320 professional games, one with less than 320 but more than 260, and the rest can't have played more than 260.

Here's the team I'd create - it looks a little similar to Cale's proposed lineup, with a few tweaks:

Lucic-Krejci-Seguin
Marchand-Bergeron-Caron (on and on and on line)
Spooner-Camper-Knight
Trotman-Cunningham-MacDermid

Whitfield & Sauve as extras

Cross-Florek
Cohen-Warsofsky (BU BU BU!!)
Krug-Bartkowski (I might possibly also switch Florek and Bartkowski, this makes for a pretty small defense overall).

Button (7th)

Khudobin
Hutchinson

I honestly wouldn't go over the limit on veterans. Chara would look comical in the AHL at this point, as would Ference, likely.

After the jump, an assortment of links, mostly lockout-related. Sorry.
