I would not be surprised if Maclean went with Michalek - Spezza - Alfredsson to at least start the season. Established chemistry is gonna be key with such a short camp and no exhibition games. If you try and start the season with new combinations on both your top lines, that's asking for some early struggles IMO. Long term I'm sure Alfie will find his way back to Turris' wing, but I think a fast start will be so important this year.

Michalek - Spezza - Alfredsson - established chemistry, and a bonafide top line
Latendresse - Turris - Silfverberg - Hit or miss line, most likely a miss
Greening - Smith - Neil - played together in the playoffs last year, and looked good together IMO
Daugavins/Regin - JOB - Condra - more established chemistry

If that top line gets hot early, and the power play clicks with Karlsson, we could easily see ourselves with 8 or 9 points in our first 5 games.
