My expectations:

Michalek - Spezza - Silfverberg (could be a mid to top tier first line depending on how Silfverberg adjusts)
Latendresse - Turris - Alfredsson (the line with the most question marks...however it has huge potential...if it works out we could see a 1A and 1B line situation)
Regin - O'Brien - Condra (there's some skill here, a lot of heart and endurance...can probably be counted on for some extra scoring here and there and if Regin stays healthy who knows what they can do)
Greening - Smith - Neil (this line will be a nightmare for opposing teams...they can score, too, but they will be the Ottawa version of the bash brothers +1)

Methot - Karlsson (this will be one of the best d-pairings in the league when all is said and done)
Borowiecki - Gonchar (has potential...Boro is solid and I don't think he'll be blinded by the bright lights while Gonchar is in a contract year and has been playing well in the KHL)
Phillips - Wierchioch (another line that should see a bit of time...PW has been progressing really well and didn't look out of place in his last call-up while Phillips has always been a rock for this team)

Anderson - Lehner - Bishop (more goaltending depth than we have ever had as an organization and any number of them could be considered #1s on many teams in the league to be honest...Lehner and Bishop should push Anderson for the starting position and as a result hopefully elevate his play...otherwise we have good options)

Our team stacks up well against most in the league and this is going to be a good season.
