I get a kick out of the number of times I've seen Sampsonov. Sorta like Laraque I guess; some people are so used to seeing a 'c' in there that they add it. All you have to think of is Samson tho, and then Russianize it.
Tough to say but I've the feeling then Koivu will play with Samsonov. I dont know if Kovalev will be the other winger or not. I've the feeling Johnson will be on a scoring line. I dont know how or where but he will. I think Kostitsyn and Chipchura will be in the team too.
We've like 18 forward we can use and our team would be good so it's pretty tough to say who will play with who. I dont even know who will make the team for the 1st game so... At least we have a lot of depth it's a good thing.
