I like the Lydman-Beauchamin pairing so far. They're very reliable, and I trust them against the other teams best forwards (I have no fear putting them against Kopitar, Thornton, Sedins, Toews, etc.).
Also, that 3rd line could be great. They seem to have nice chemistry together already. All play a very strong defensive game, and Koivu can dish them the puck, so they should be able to put up a good amount of points.
1st line looks good. Perry was the worst one on the line today imo, but that's probably just rust. Getzlaf played phenomenal. He was physical, he shot when he had the oppurtunity, he back-checked hard, he setup his teammates. He looked like a captain out there. Palmieri was also excellent i thought. He's got great hands, is fast, and has a really nice wrist shot.
Teemu is Teemu. Nothing more needs to be said about him
Rakell had a great NHL debut. The skill is there. Now he just needs to develop physically, and I think he'll be a really good NHLer
