MacKinnon - Huberdeau - Scheifle
-- another one of those situations where you put a lot of stock in surrounding your bright young talent with veterans (if you could call them that at 19&20).

Lessio - Jenner - Sutter
-- a line that you don't want to play against and could easily put up points

Ritchie - Shinkaruk - Wilson
-- Pretty scary there.

Rielly - Reinhart

Pouliot - Hamilton

Harrington - Dumba/Murphy

I like to have a solid shutdown guy with a guy that could play offence. I know in World Juniors its likely going to be Reinhart and Harrington as your top shutdown pairing, but I think it exposes your team in other areas if all of your eggs are in one basket, so to speak.
Injured or not, doubt Lessio would be on Jenners wing. Teammate, but i have never seen them play together.

I forgot about Shinkurek.

Would be a very good spare to toss out there.
