I don't see us rolling four lines, but we would really have two decent third lines in this scenario.
I also think Markov's minutes will be carefully managed. I think your d lineup is right, but Kaberle will float thru in Markov and Bouillon's spots and Kabs will definitely be on the powerplay.
This will be the first five games anyway!
If Emelin isn't ready for that, we might have to load up with:
Markov-Subban (replace Markov with Emelin or Bouillon?? against Boston, or Gorges??)
If Galchenyuk doesn't stick, which seems likely at this point in his development, then:
Armstrong-Gomez-Bourque (Armstrong might be what these two need, and Bourque can step in to fight when Colby plays cheap)
Good balance, but will they score?
Our best offensive pairings:
