I'm not the biggest Fiddler and Nystrom fan out there, but I think Gully will use them. They will not however (or I should please, please for the love of God) play against the other team's top line. They just weren't effective in that role last year.
17 minutes sounds about right for Jagr. He'll get a heavy dose of PP time, but probably no time on the PK. Like I said, at ES, I think you could see time spread fairly evenly between 4 lines.
it's funny. i see fans of all teams, at some time or another, mention the "rolling 4 lines" bit year after year. but to my recollection, it rarely seems to happen. eventually, the top line gets the lion's share, the second a bit less, the third maybe 13-15 min or so, and the fourth less than 10.
i do trust this 4th line more. kinda have to as it really is just last year's 3rd line. and so could handle more minutes.
