Doughty, Johnson, Scuderi, Greene and OD are the top 5 for sure.

Hickey will be battling Drewiske and Voinov for the #6 spot. I see Harrold as the #7.
Here were the most common pairings from last season (excluding guys no longer on the team):

Code:
3287	EV	8 DOUGHTY,DREW - 6 O'DONNELL,SEAN
1201	EV	2 GREENE,MATT - 6 O'DONNELL,SEAN
895	EV	2 GREENE,MATT - 3 JOHNSON,JACK
571	EV	3 JOHNSON,JACK - 6 O'DONNELL,SEAN
437	EV	8 DOUGHTY,DREW - 3 JOHNSON,JACK
362	EV	8 DOUGHTY,DREW - 44 DREWISKE,DAVIS 
179	EV	44 DREWISKE,DAVIS - 2 GREENE,MATT
For some reason Greene seldom played with Doughty. Not sure why. Given that O'Donnell needs to be a bottom pairing guy, I think if/when Drewiske makes the team, he'll be paired with Doughty. My guess at the opening night pairings:

Doughty-Drewiske
Johnson-Scuderi
Greene-O'Donnell

Nothing to lose really. Although I'm not sure Zubov would be willing to play here.
Brilliant idea.
