Solely on availability of space.

TT should start off getting the majority of his time with our second line at RW. He won't unseat Carter at that spot so he has to go somewhere.

He won't unseat JW on the first line just yet either.

He has to play somewhere so I put him on the third line due to availability. I am not entirely comfortable with the idea but it appears to be our best option.

Pearson would be filling an open roster spot and an area of immediate need. That is why I would give him a shot as our 2nd line LW. He should be an upgrade after adjustment time to both Penner and King offensively and an acceptable exchange in every other area or at least as much as can be expected of a rookie.
