Landeskog-ROR-Downie
Palushaj-Stastny-Jones

Stastny will be lucky to get near 50 points playing 3rd line minutes with those wingers.
I will be very shocked to see that forward group entering next season. There will be at least 2 to 3 moves (trades, UFA, etc) that include players in the top 9. Roy and Sakic know this group failed last season, they won't enter the season with the same guys.

I really think the only locks are Duchene, PAP, Landy, ROR (only because we can't trade him), and Downie. Stastny might get traded, McGinn as well though I think we keep him, Palushaj will be replaced by a UFA, and Jones might get bought out.
