No idea really, haven't paid enough attention to what's going on at camp.

But on NHL 09, I'm sure I'll go with:

Tanguay - Koivu - Kostitsyn 46
Higgins - Lang - Kovalev
Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Latendresse

I really wanna see Pleks centering the Kostitsyn brothers. I think they will have incredible chemistry and they would be a very very fast line.
Latendresse always done good with Koivu, so put him on a line with him and Tanguay and see what he can do.
Kovalev and Lang might have some magic left in them, put hard-working Higgins on their line and it could be dangerous as well.
4th line is self explanitory....they go out and muck it up.

Defence is pretty much the same as last year. I hope O'Byrne plays more than Brisebois, but thats about it.

Price and Halak are going to compete and provide great goaltending for the team.
Kovalev would need to play away from Lang/Higgins for a certain amount of time per game, he needs a mininum of 18-19 minutes per game to be effective... I don't think Lang will get more then that, and Higgins might get that from PK time.

A.Kost-Pleks-Kovalev (ain't broke, don't fix... Was a top 5 line in the league last year, not 6 years ago ala:Lang/Kovalev)
Tanguay-Koivu-Latendresse
Higgins-Lang-S.Kost
Begin-Lapierre-Laraque
X-Kostopoulos

Markov-Komi
Hamrlik-O'Byrne
Bouillon-Gorges
X-Brisebois

Price
Halak

Personally i'd go with

Tanguay-Plekanec-Kovalev
Higgins-Koivu-A.Kostitsyn
Latendresse-Lang-S.Kostitsyn
Kostopoulos-Lapierre-Laraque
Bégin
Dandenault

Markov-Komisarek
Hamrlik-Gorges
Bouillon-O'Byrne

Price
Halak
I second these lines

I would be quick to shift O'Byrne and Gorges though if O'Byrne is playing well and make him and Hammer our shut down D pairing.

At the rate of these injuries, I predict the roster of the Hamilton Bulldogs...

I see a lot of people putting Lats on the second line with Koivu and Tanguay...but as far as I'm concerned he has to earn that spot. It's still Higgins to lose.

Anyways, my lines are the same as the OP's, except for Bouillon instead of Brisebois.

We like Lats there because of his chemistry with Koivu and no-one else.
