It's never too early to look at lines.

We can pretty well guarantee that Ken Holland won't make a trade unless it's at the deadline. At least he gives us that. But with Zetterberg done FOR-EV-ER, and based on a few things written here and there by the (probably) team - controlled media, but mostly the lines we've seen so far, we can make out how the roster shapes up.

Who cares about the average at best goalies and let's face it, Hicketts is going to be the 7th d-man and we'll run the same crap defense we did all last year.

Let's look at the forwards, which actually hold some promise this year! Bertuzzi – Larkin –Mantha Nyquist – Nielsen – Helm Abdelkader –AA –Vanek XXX - Glendenning - XXX Frk and Witkowski extras Frk is injured and Witkowski has the goon repellant/rover ability. But Kenny hasn't been afraid to say goodbye to Frk before.

I believe Khan wrote that Abby was meant to be on the third line with Vanek and AA. What a defensive hell hole, when last year it was the "shut down" line. Helm just scored 2 goals in the scrimmage. He's cemented there until he slips and falls on a freshly mopped floor, breaking his tailbone.

So this leaves 2 open spots for Svechnikov, Rasmussen, and Zadina. Who gets those spots? Cage match anyone? Your crazy (or not so crazy) predictions below.
