I'm pretty sure Purcell will play on the 2nd PP unit with Downie and Moore - just like in the playoffs. They had great chemistry. Maybe Shannon, Ritola or Connolly will crack the 2nd unit but as long as there are no injuries I don't see Purcell getting any ice time with 1st unit. The 1st is pretty much set: Brewer and St. Louis at the point distributing the puck, Stamkos on the left circle, Vinny on the right, Malone in front of the net.

Unless you have a time machine, set it to "two weeks from now", come back and tell us how Connolly did in those 9 games noone will be able to tell if he's here to stay beyond those 9 games. Connolly will start on the 3rd line together with Shannon and Moore. If he was starting with Stamkos and St. Louis he'd be playing against the opponent's best defenders. Instead, Downie will play on the 1st line again.
