I think there is a strong possibility the "vet 3rd line center" they bring in will be Hecht. Depends on if his health checks out, but concussions are so unpredictable it's a coin flip, look at Andy McDonald, Connolly, and others. It's just an unkown. I think they bring in Jochen, give Grigorenko a shot for his 9 games, and keep Adam and Girgensons, along with Sundher, in the AHL for depth. McCormick, Porter and Ellis will start the season in the AHL.
They said on WGR they made an offer to Doan, so if they get him, I could see Grigorenko on a line with him and Leino, but I have a feeling he stays in Phoenix or goes to a place like SJ or LA to stay close to home.
On defense, Leopold will pair with Myers again, Regehr will be with Sekera, and Ehrhoff will likely be paired with Sulzer, but I believe it will be an open competition between Sulzer, Pardy, Weber, and McNabb for that last spot.
Overall I don't think it's a bad squad at all. Getting a guy like Doan would really help to secure a very good group of veteran wingers (Vanek, Pominville, Doan, Stafford, Ott, Leino, Kaleta) around a very young group of centers.
