Since MB and MT came in, it seems they have favored very much stability in the linemates.
It starts with Duos.
Some are obvious according to last season time usage:
  • Plekanec - Gionta
  • Galchenyuk - Eller
  • Pacioretty - Desharnais
  • Moen - White
We should expect some experiment during the first 3 or 4 pre-season games.
But the favored duos seems to be pretty much locked unless a player goes into a slump or injuries.

With Gionta coming late from injury, I can see Briere replacing him.
  • Bourque - Plekanec - Briere
  • Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
  • Pacioretty - Desharnais - Prust
  • Moen - White/Dumont - Parros/Dumont

Once Gionta is back:
  • Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
  • Galchenyuk - Eller - Briere
  • Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher
  • Moen - White/Dumont - Prust/Dumont

Among these players, only Eller (L and C), Prust (L, C and R), Galchenyuk (L, C), Bourque (12 minutes on RW) and Moen (5 minutes on RW) had time on more than one position.
