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.
