Too many possibilities I think there are some major questions though such as who plays significant time at LW? Personally I would like to see Zherdev put on his off wing and oriented somewhat like Vanek, just a pure gun, let it rip. He is not a poor passer but his willingness comes and goes. Beyond that, what we NEED from him is goal scoring.

The other question is who plays center between Briere or Giroux at the start of the year? With Betts out it seems logical that Giroux will return to his role centering the third line but he also seems like a great fit as a winger with Carter IMO.

Could imagine the opening lineups looking like:

Zherdev-Richards-Carcillo
JVR-Carter-Giroux
Hartnell-Briere-Leino
Shelley-Lappy-Powe

or perhaps
Zherdev-Richards-Briere
Hartnell-Carter-Giroux
JVR-Powe-Leino
Shelley-Lappy-Carcillo
