While Santorelli paired with Jones and Wilson might work, it makes the least amount of sense. Santorelli is a pure offensive player, like Dumont and Sullivan. Santorelli will be best suited playing on a line whose primary purpose is to score goals- like our top line. Paired with Legwand and Erat during camp, that line did just that.

As SLake said, in camp the JWW line was pretty dominant as they were in their only preseason game together. That said, the ELS and SAD lines were also very good in camp/preseason.

Some line shuffling will likely occur if Hornqvist continues playing well, but to whom and to where will be interesting to watch.
