A lot of people have Mackinnon in the top 6 at wing but they haven't tried him at wing at all in the camp so I think he's gonna be 4th line C or 13th Forward. The top 6 seems fairly set with Huberdeau-RNH-Scheifele and Hudon-Strome-Ritchie.

Putting him between Hudon and Ritchie today seems like they want to get a look at him if they need someone to play C in the top 6. Say if RNH had to go back to NHL and they bumped Strome up to the top line ?

Based on today's lines
Here's how things look to me

Huberdeau-Hopkins-Scheifele
Played together one game and have sat since

Hudon-Strome-Ritchie
Hudon and Ritchie together again today and Strome plays with Ritchie already

Danault-Jenner-Mcneill
Danault and Jenner are locks, adding Mcneill makes it a great shutdown line.

Drouin-Mackinnon-Rattie
Drouin and Rattie on same line again today. Mackinnon has only been used at C so makes sense to put him here.

Camara
If i'm correct and they do go with 3 scoring lines, they'd probably want a big body here. I think Camara has been the best player remaining that could fill that role.
