Seems like a lock that these two will get a surefire lock at the top 2 lines:
1. Wolski-Richards-Gabby
2. Dubinsky-Stepan-Callahan

And than these two seems likely for the other two:
3. [Avery/Rupp]-Anisimov-Zucc
4. [Avery/Rupp]-Boyle-Prust

The first lines in TC have for as far as I can remember, with the exception of Shanny's first year here when JJ was injured, basically been kept together for atleast a couple of games of pre-season.

I like that Zucc seems to have a spot to loose. As opposed to Christensen.

I bracket Avery/Rupp since I wouldn't be suprised at all if Torts is just playing game with Avery by putting him on like a 8th line to start the season...

I don't mind at all that Stepan is given a shot at a scoring role on a top 2 line. I think that Anisimov-Zucc and Stepan-Cally makes alot more sense than the other way around.
