With your line-up as a base, you need to have two players that can take FO per line:
Galchenyuk Plekanec Gallagher
Pacioretty Eller Brière
Bourque Desharnais Gionta

The way coaching staff saw it:
  • Plekanec - Gionta (Bourque, Ryder, Prust and Pacioretty)
    Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta seems pretty sure
  • Pacioretty - Desharnais (Gallagher - Cole)
    Pacioretty - Desharnais - Briere/Gallagher seems probable
  • Galchenyuk - Eller (Prust, Armstrong, Ryder, Gallagher)
    Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher/Briere
Prust will go in top-9 as needed during the games.

At first I tought that Briere should be paired with Galchenyuk and Eller to bring more experience to that line.
But Pacioretty can not take faceoffs (he took 7 last season with 29%) so Briere must go with them because Gallagher also does not take FO (25 last season with 32%).

The top-9 is almost the same as last year.
Coaching staff is same and was geared toward very stable lines to enhance chemistry.
Once you have the most favored duos of last season, the rest is logical.

One thing right off the bat that struck me is Price saying that he's not used to the pads yet.

Last year as the lockout ended, I remember Price being interviewed and saying something along the lines of he wasn't feeling 100 percent because of the sudden end to the lockout.

There's a pattern there, and it has to do with a lack of confidence and hesistant stance.

I can't say I blame Carey too much, he has tons of pressure on his shoulders, but he has to learn to only worry about what one can personally control.

I'm a Price defender.. But this pisses me off.
"Oh, I haven't tried them yet."
Not only that but he hasn't even practiced with his new goalie coach yet..

If it was me and I got new equipment, especially something that was a detriment rather than an improvement to my game, I'd be out on the ice trying to see what the differences and changes will be.
If I got a new coach, I'd be calling him and asking where can we meet to start going over a few things, discuss our philosophies, some introductory meetings so I can practice and train a certain way that will implement the coming changes so there's already a rapport and a base built before the pre-season/season.

The indifference to the whole process is pissing me off.

NOt sure if yOu know this but almost all goalies aren't used to the pads because the specs on the rule change happened in August. Meaning goalies didn't order pads till like a week ago. Also i know Lundqvist said thr same since he just got his pads. Also regarding the lockout. ... pretty much everyone wasnt ready unless u were playing in ahl or Europe

it's hard to say whether he might have legit reasons for not trying them out yet but yeah doesn't sound good. And I'm a Price supporter too.

Guys, the first game official is in 1 month. He'll see plenty of ice with his new coache before taking part of the game. For a guy like Price, it is pretty important that he can completly disconnect from the game during the summer. The guy will play 60-70 games this season, he has to start the year mentaly fresh. Let's just hope his conditionning is up to par though.

Goaltenders around the League began receiving new equipment from manufacturers during the course of August, and four got a chance to try them out on the ice for the first time last Tuesday at the Reebok-CCM goalie Summit outside Montreal

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=680812

"last Tuesday" was August 20th, exactly 2 weeks ago so yeah, it's not like he's been lazy all summer. But with Price, it's all a matter of saying things. He always sound so flat, uninterested! He should take classes from PK.

I found this part interesting (same article):

Giguere, for one, said he hopes bosses around the League will understand what the goalies will be going through.

"Coaches and GMs, you guys want that, you've been asking for more goals [through the] five hole," Giguere said. "So if your goalie gives up a goal five hole, you need to take a breath and remember that you asked for it. It's not our fault."

Subban almost didn't smile, he barely showed his white teeth. He looks strong, mature and older. He's probably 30 years old right now.

I hear ya but I think goalies don't tend to get early skates in like regular skaters. Brodeur was on NHL radio last month and said as much. Off-ice conditioning and stretching programs are more in sync with their preparation than being used for target practice.

Apparently Therrien was asked whether he thought Galchenyuk was ready for a bigger role rather than him flat out saying it...big difference IMO. If he was asked that, then he has to say 'yes'. If he came out and said it, it means it's actually something significant enough to mention as part of the upcoming season.

Kinda surprised by the lack of Desharnais coverage seeing how it's an important season for him and his future with the team.

I don't know about you guys but I always overlook Rene when I'm thinking about players on the team. I don't know if it's because we haven't exactly seen much of him (he came at the end of the year in 11-12, and missed some time in a shortened season last year) but he just doesn't seem pop right into my mind when I think about players I like coming into this year.

And now that I think more about it, I don't think that's fair. If I can remember correctly, he looked really good when he was healthy last year, both at the beginning and end of the season. In fact, when I went to Game 1, he scored a beautiful backhand goal and was one of the best players for us during that game. If he stays healthy, he should be a great player for us this year during his first full 82 game season with the team.
