They can't just be good enough for the NHL any more, they have to be able to TAKE a job from an established vet. That said, my opening night lines 3/4 would be:
Clifford - Stoll - Moreau
Richardson - Loktionov - Lewis
If only because I think that fourth line could be something different and special.
Also, regarding the defensemen, Hickey and Voynov need a special combination of luck and opportunity to secure spots this year. Tehy need some luck in a veteran going down for a while so they can step in and show they can take over his role. Voynov looks like he has the inside track for the first shot, but both guys could make it. Martinez also has to hold them off.
If they don't make they cut, they don't make the team. What would I do? Send them to the minors for seasoning, it's what you do for prospects who can't beat out the veterans for spots.
