Per the depth chart: it's largely right in terms of who's the best in their given positions, but I don't think it is a guide for who's going to play with whom.

I think there's little chance we'll end up playing most of the season with Nash-Richards-Gaborik together. It looks dreamy on paper, but in today's NHL, you rarely get one superstar line -- teams are so good defensively, coaches like to balance out the scoring a bit so you force the other team to choose when to throw on their best defenders. As we all know, Torts doesn't go by 1st-line, 2nd-line, etc. anyway.

Edit: looking at it again, on defence, I still think Staal can come back as strong or even stronger than either Girardi or McDonagh, but only time will tell.
