I could see Kopitar-Loktionov-Stoll-Schenn as the centers, at least to start the season. Lewis can play RW on the 4th line.

Penner-Kopitar-Williams
Smyth-Loktionov-Brown
Clifford-Stoll-Simmonds
Parse-Schenn-Lewis/Westgarth
Richardson

Richardson will be kept as insurance for Loktionov/Schenn and/or injuries. Same with Parse, he will get 4th line minutes until there is an injury. Loktionov has to make the team as the #2 center for him to be usefull. He's not an energy/shutdown center.

I think Dean will make some moves at the draft and could open up some spots for the younger players or some of the younger players could get traded.
