I think it would have to depend heavily on (1) if Schenn is going to be the 3rd line center/on the opening day lineup in some capacity, (2) if Nylander is healthy enough, and (3) if Jagr is willing to be juggled between several lines if Nylander doesn't work out or be set to 3rd line duty. It is even possible that playing 3rd line minutes not against a top line and still seeing a good amount of PP time will benefit Jagr's production and wear and tear over the course of the season.
Jagr third line not happening 2nd possible but i think he will play 1st line..............
