I'm pretty convinced that at some point before the season starts or early in the season, one of the wingers will most likely get traded. We definitely have one too many at this point on 1-way deals. But at this point, I'd say the lines look like:

Booth - Weiss - Frolik
Higgins - Reinprecht - Bernier
Stillman - Matthias - Grabner
Olesz - Reasoner - Dvorak
Extras: Bitz, Peters

McCabe - Wideman
Allen - Kulikov
Garrison - Weaver
Extra: Paetsch

With that said, I wouldnt be totally surprised to see Stillman traded and Olesz or Bitz moved up. As much as I'd like to pencil in Grabner on the 2nd line for opening day, I think he may not start there immediately. But within a few months I could easily see it happening...think of how Frolik started on the 3rd line and moved up eventually. I also could see Matthias moving up to the 2nd line by mid season.
