This is a lot of what I expected, although I would suspect it's Pickard instead of Dekanich, if for no other reason than to get all the high-profile prospects in the first preseason home game.

My expectations for a lineup are something like this:

Sullivan-Arnott-Dumont
Jones-O'Reilly-Tootoo/Ward (if he's healthy)
Hörnqvist-Wilson-Maki
Grant-Goc-McKenzie

Weber-Suter
Blum-Lääkso
R. Ellis-Yonkman

D. Ellis
Pickard

I think that's a pretty good overall mix of prospects, players vying for roster spots, and roster players. Then, for the next game, you have:

Santorelli-Legwand-Erat
Olvecky-Spaling-Thuresson
Jessiman-Eaves-Santorelli
Smithson-Guite-Belak

Hamhuis-Klein
Sulzer-Franson
Dietrich-Matheson/Sinkewich/Ford

Rinne
Dekanich
