Jones - Moore - Shannon
Tyrell - Thompson - Hall
A guy like Jones will battle with Ritola, Pyatt, Connolly, and Ashton for that last roster spot, which I made on the third line because I love the DNA line too much to split up. I also don't think Connolly or Ashton make the team, although we might see Ashton get a few call-ups during the year. Downie, Malone, and Shannon I think will all be rotated among the top 3 lines and all see the top 6 at some point.
Ohlund - Brewer
Hedman - Clark
Gilroy - Kubina
And of course, Bergeron and Gervais will likely be rotated in and out of the line-up, or used as a 7th defenseman (more likely, IMO).
And in goal,

I'd like to see Wright get the LW position on the third line. He's got more size and scoring ability B. Jones. If Jones makes the team it's as the 12th FWD, ie pressbox most nights.
