What I think the lines will look like, at least at first:

Parise-Koivu-Heatley
Nino-Coyle-Pominville
Cooke-Brodziak-Mitchell
Dowell-Konopka-Rupp

Heatley gets another chance on the 1st line. Let's hope he's been skating a lot, otherwise he should find himself on the 3rd line soon enough. I think the 2nd line LW spot is Nino's to lose. They'll only send him down if he fails. I think Granlund will have improved from last year, but Coyle will always be bigger and the one who's better defensively (which Yeo seems to value so much) so Coyle gets the 2nd line center spot. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the young forwards we drafted ourselves got traded before the start of training camp.

Konopka could still be traded (only for a draft pick, I hope), and in that case Dowell will take the 4th line center spot and someone like Veilleux can be brought into the 4th line wing.


Suter-Brodin
Scandella-Spurgeon
Ballard-Dumba


I'm hoping Dumba can bump Stoner into the press box for good and it looks like they're giving him a good look at training camp.
