Hartnell-Briere-Jagr---pretty elite cycling line
Read - Schenn - Simmonds---Underrated defensive line, and they could all pot 40+ points
Talbot - Holmstrom - Nodl---very pesky line, excellent defensively, won't cost us offense.

Betts, Sestito/Shelley/Rinaldo - I feel like Betts and Holmstrom will split time as they rest Betts and groom Holmstrom. Sestito, Shelley, and Rinaldo essentially fill the same role, and we won't need an enforcer unless there's a regular enforcer dressed for an opposing team.

Timonen - Coburn - Coburn needs #1 time
Pronger - Carle - Can't break these two up when Pronger's healthy
Meszaros - Gustafsson - Mez is a solid partner for a rookie to start with.

Lilja, Bartulis

I like it, except I'm not sold on Read yet. To small of a sample size, plus two rookies on one line can be scary
