Vanek-Hodgson-Ott (S-P-G)
Foligno-Ennis-Stafford (G-P-S)
Leino-Adam-Pominville (P-G-S)
Gerbe-McCormick-Kaleta (typical energy line)
I believe Ott would play LW and Vanek would slide over to RW. I doubt Adam makes the team unless Ruff has no other choice at C, but if so Adam would be the "S" on that line since his shot is his best skill. Pominville would be a little "P" and "S", while Leino would actually be the "G" due to his excellent board work the last six weeks, with a little "P" thrown in.

It may very well turn out that Regier waits until after camp to decide on that 3rd C spot. With Grigs, Adam, and even Porter or Girgs being outside possibilities. If...IF...Adam can prove himself enough to start at C I wouldn't be too unhappy with that position's lack of experience when they have five wingers collectively for a veteran presence. We as fans will just have to expect some major mental gaffes along the way, but if the talent is legit we'll be looking good in a short year or two.
