So for opening day line-ups I'd say it's safe to leave Whitney off.
I am not sure if that is exactly true, perhaps someone here can clarify? A Pittsburgh reporter was saying that Crosby didn't have to stay on IR for the whole week because he finished the year on IR.

If that is true, then I would assume Whitney could play Sunday as he finished the year on IR.

Also the lines today at practice were (as per 1260):

Hall-NugentHopkins-Hemsky
Smyth-Belanger-Eberle
Pajaarvi-Horcoff-Omark
Petrell-Lander-Jones
Hordichuk

edit:
D pairings were:
Barker-Petry
Peckham-Potter
Whitney*-Gilbert

Whitney is going on IR so I assume we'll see Sutton paired up with Gilbert

If you read his original post it said when healthy that is what I was responding to. But no worries I don't read posts proper sometime either
