By the time the NHL season will likely start, I'm pretty sure that Schwartz will be in the line-up when opening night comes around. Agree that Sobotka will likely remain on the fourth line and Steen moving to centre.

Schwartz - Backes - Oshie
Perron - Berglund - Tarasenko
McDonald - Steen - Stewart
Sobotka - Nichol - Langenbrunner
Reaves/D'Agostini

I don't see D'Agostini getting 4th line time, but with our inability to avoid injuries for any period of time means he'll see a decent amount of time anyway.

Defense basically speaks for itself, apart from the mix up on the Jax/Shatty sides. Cole got time with Pietrangelo last season, and I expect he'll be given a proper chance to make that spot his own in the first 10-12 games before we think of moving Pietrangelo to the left and pairing him with Polak.
