Comeau-MacKenzie-Boll

Skille

Several obvious problems, most serious being top line left wing. RJ has certainly done nothing to earn that spot in the past two seasons, but his experience and salary probably mean that he should get the first look in that role. If he doesn't fill it satisfactorily, then down the lineup he goes! No idea, though, who should get the next crack at it. The other problem is centered on left/right wings. I don't know who plays on which side, nor do I know who is able to switch successfully. For the purposes of my own amusement, I'm ignoring that factor, completely!

After Horton's return:

RJ-AA-Gaborik
Cam-Joey-Horton
Letestu-Dubinsky-Foligno
Calvert-DMac-Comeau

Boll/Skille

On the blue line:

Johnson-Tyutin
Nikitin-Prout
Wiznewski-Erixon

Melart

I could see Melart and Niki6 switched.

To me, that looks like a fun team to follow!
Love the lineup, except I could see definitely see Murray making the team and pushing Erixon out. I feel as is Murray is a more polished defenseman, he can already skate and pass on a nhl level, question is can he keep up physically. He'll get his chances to say the least. To not play Murray on opening for publicity sake alone would be a mistake. I think just about everyone is expecting to see why we passed on Galchenyuk...

And for Melart if he can adapt I could see him pushing for spot, maybe if prout can't keep up or maybe partnering with prout.... My god...
