If so its a pretty balanced approach. I have no doubt Grigorenko can stick if given the proper role. Also Leino was pretty good before he signed with Buffalo so I dont find it that unusual to hear him playing well.
I believe that this will be the line up opening night, with TJ Brennan as the 7th defenceman, other possibilities include Matt Ellis or John Scott. Both Nathan Gerbe(back) and Cody McCormick(hand) are both expected to miss time with respective injuries.

Line 1 (LW/C/RW)

Vanek(26) Hodgson(19) Pominville(29)
Foligno(82) Ennis(63) Stafford(21)
Ott(9) Grigorenko(25) Leino(23)
Hecht(55) Kaleta(36)

It remains to be seen how Grigorenko will do in the NHL but what I have seen so far from camp gives me every indication that he can play and produce at this level. Really knows how to find the open ice and create offense from virtually nothing.
