Second: I see the defense being very fluid this year with Ron making a lot of changes along the way, giving a lot of the kids chances to play. McNabb, Ruh, Pysyk(less likely), and Risto could all be in and out of the lineup.
I'd prefer to have Risto playing and getting top 4 minutes than riding the bench. I see risto spending the start of the season in rochester then being a Dec/Jan call up.
Ott-Grigs-Leino had something there prior to the past season. Ennis and foligno had some chemistry as well.
If Armia is called up I'd prefer to have him on the same line as Leino. The fact they are both from finland has some measureable value.
