So in summary, they took the forwards they used against the Bruins (who had a ton of trouble) and the defense against the Sabres (that was missing virtually all of the NHL regulars).

Could be ugly against the likes of Bobby Ryan, Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek and company.
Well the point of a pre-season game isn't to win, it's to see what the players can do.
