Pretty good read. I know the lines "are in pencil" as Trotz said, but some interesting choices. The second PP unit was pretty intriguing to me as Ellis / Kostitsyn / Wilson / Legwand / Smith. I don't think the Wilson / Gaustad / Halischuk comes to fruition as the article mentions; Goose is a solid 4th line center with great PK game and big faceoff pulls, but his 5 on 5 offense is mediocre at best and I think he would stifle Wilson's game. Full lines from today's skate:

Erat / Fisher / Kostitsyn
Smith / Legwand / Hornqvist
Wilson / Gaustad / Halischuk
McGrattan / Spaling / Yip / Mueller

Weber / Josi
Klein / Hannan
Ellis / Gill

Power play:
Weber / Josi / Erat / Fisher / Hornqvist
Ellis / Kostitsyn / Wilson / Legwand / Smith
