Marc Burch, Fred, Dejan Jakovic, Julius James, Jaime Moreno, Bryan Namoff, Chris Pontius, Santino Quaranta, Clyde Simms, Danny Szetela, Rodney Wallace
Looks pretty similar to the list I compiled last week, with a couple of notable exceptions:
- Swapping Wallace in for Olsen. I suspected that Wallace would be graduating from GenAd, thus forcing us to protect him, but I had figured it would be at the expense of one of the "bubble boys" filling out the list. Olsen's retirement changed all that, allowing a straight swap of Wallace for Olsen on the list.
- Burch got the FO's nod from the "bubble boy" list (McTavish, Jacobson, Burch, Vaughn). There wasn't much among these guys for my money, but I figured Jacobson would be an easy choice given the departure of Olsen. Hmmm. Wonder if the future coach would have had the same opinion?
Let the waiting begin...
