Critchlow-Cuzner-Cote/Randell
And Desjardins may be traded but that looks like a very good set of forwards....now the defense
I can see the rationale behind putting Drouin on a wing to start, but if he's a natural center, and develops as expected, it'll be best for him and the Moose to have him centering his own line. I should have clarified that that I don't expect Drouin to step in right away in such a large role (especially mid-season), but think he has to end up at the #2 C position if everything works out.

I can't see Grenier anywhere but the top six. I'm not his biggest fan but he's too good to be on the third line.

I don't see them cutting Ciampini from the roster either. Like I said before, I think they need to make a deal to solidify the defense. Maybe Ciampini + Shewfelt for an upgrade back there?
