My guess....

Benoit Pouliot-Scott Gomez-Brian Gionta
Mike Cammalleri-Tomas Plekanec-Andrei Kostitsyn

This should be the top 6 forwards. As much as the Habs will want to put Eller in a good situation, the same can be said with Pouliot. Baring a disasterous camp, i think Pouliot will be given every opportunity to play on a scoring line.

Max Pacioretty-Lars Eller-Maxim Lapierre
Travis Moen-Dustin Boyd-Tom Pyatt
extra: Mathieu Darche

I'd personally like to see Pacioretty in the AHL to properly develop his skills, but if he has a good camp, and i think he will, i bet he makes the big club. That third line has good size, skating ability and skill.

Not sure how the 4th line would play as a unit, but thats sort of the leftovers. As good as Pyatt was in the playoffs last year he will still have to fight for a spot. Darche gets the 13th forward spot unless Ryan White (or someone else) plays outstanding.

Roman Hamrlik-PK Subban
Jaroslav Spacek-Ryan O'Byrne
Hal Gill-Josh Gorges
extra. Yanick Weber/Mathieu Carle
Injured: Andrei Markov

The only real battle on D i think is for the #7 spot, likely between Weber and Carle. O'Byrne gets relegated to #7 spot when Markov comes back.
