Stepan and Gaborik have chemistry from last year. They are both cerebral players. Kreider adds speed and a forecheck to that line.

Hagelin-Boyle-Pyatt
Hagelin and Boyle have good chemistry from last season. People forget Torts put Hagelin with Boyle for quite a while when he was first called up so that Boyle could cover up for some mistakes Hagelin was making defensively. Hagelin adds some creativity and elusiveness to the (2) Towers on this line. Boyle and Pyatt will drive hard to the net and work hard down low, opening up ice for Hagelin.

Rupp-Halpern-Asham
Hopefully this line can wreak some havoc in the offensive zone. Rupp and Asham have chemistry from playing together in Pittsburgh (2) years ago. Halpern should be able to give this line the puck with his face-off skills.
Those are my lines exactly, and for largely the same reasons.
