Having Vanek, Poms, or Ennis on the third line and a rookie in their place on the top 2 lines is highly highly unlikely IMO.

Talk about great expectations ... Yikes

It will only breed great disappointment.
You think Grigorenko doesn't make the team?

Besides, Lindy likes to roll 3 lines with scoring punch (as is shown in my projected set). If Grigs makes the team (which I think he will in 2013/14), I think Lindy won't be dumb enough to not give him a solid NHL scoring option.

And you're also assuming what everyone expects. I think Grigorenko makes the team, is given a winger that can score and he WILL struggle at points. I'm not expecting 100 point season out of him. I'd be perfectly happy with 40-50 and showing glimpses.
