And since he's more of a RW, I'm starting to think the org is going to try Huberdeau at center if Bjugstad doesnt come out of college and make this team. I know people wont really like my lines if I put them together but here's what I think Dineen will try to do to start the season (this wont be how it is by the end though):

Upshall-Weiss-Versteeg
Flash-Goc-Mueller
Bergy-Huberdeau-Kopecky
Parros-Smithson/Matthias-Skille

It balances the lineup, gives Huby some time to adjust, and would be difficult for a lot of teams to key on any 1 line. Baring injuries, we're still as good of a team as we were last yr.
I think this has the potential to be as good as last season's team if not better. Mueller is a dice roll and Hubs is unknown at the NHL level but I have faith. Your lines are a bit off, imo. Hubs will be in a top 6 role playing wing.
