Our PP guys will be DD, Briere, Gionta, Pacioretty, Plekanec, Bourque etc. So Galchenyuk will have to wait.

Hopefully, he still manages to squeeze in and do better than one of our vets, thus forcing MT's hand. That could happen, but I don't entertain any illusions in that regard.
I'd think long and hard before guaranteeing PP spots to Desharnais, Pacioretty and Gionta. They were given those spots last season and in the past... Pacioretty is as poor a PP player as you can find, Gionta has absolutely no tool in his shed more than 5 feet away from the net, and Desharnais has to play better this year.

I would play:

Bourque - Plekanec - Galchenyuk
Markov - Subban


Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher
Briere - Subban

If Pacioretty doesn't start doing something, you get him out, put Desharnais on the wing and put Eller at C.
