Skille - Kopecky - Matthias/Bradley/Carter

Soupy - Kulikov
Jovo - Gudbranson
Weaver - Garrison

I dont disagree with your first statement, Santorelli is gonna be the 2nd line center. But Tallon didnt sign Kopecky for $3M+ if he didnt expect him to be playing in the top 9 and possibly even the top 6. No way will we see him as the 4th line center...first because he's not a very good center and secondly because he's capable of playing a top 6 role as shown in Chicago last season. And really we'll see a balance in terms of icetime between the 2nd & 3rd line IMO so it'll essentially be line 1, line 2a, line 2b, line 4.
