Obviously there are some x factors. Particularly Markov and Kaberle. As well as Gally making the jump.

For Kabs and Markov, you have to go on faith. If it doesn't work out make a change. But to start the season, i think you have to give your guys the benefit of the doubt and expect that they will perform.

For Gally, I think it will be fine for his development to play this shortened season. And I can't think of 2 better players than Pleks and Gionta to learn from.

Gomez can float around the bottom 6 when there is injuries.

Leaving Weber and Boullion gives a lefty and a righty for injury call ups. Most of the question marks are on defence, but there aren't a whole lot of options. Like I said, you just have to expect that the players will perform and go from there.
I like that lineup but I think I'd switch Armstrong with Moen and Galchenyuk with Bourque. That way there's some toughness on all lines.
