I also dont think you'll ever see Lapierre at center again, so he's a RWer now. They'll do what they did with Pacioretty last season and give Eller a lengthy tryout on a good line. Of all the LWers who might end up with them, Moen is the highest in pecking order so I see a 3rd of:

Moen-Eller-Lapierre (which is actually a big, decent 2-way line)

That leaves for the 4th:

Pyatt-Boyd-Darche/Whichever kid has an awesome training camp.



On defense, I think they'll split the pairs to have vets mento OB and Subban, until Markov comes back in November:

Hamrlik-Spacek
Gorges-Subban
Gill-O'Byrne
i can't wait to see our PP defense line...
