Opening Night

TC is over, and the line-up has started to solidify. Anson Carter's injury has sent him out into the UFA market for the meantime, and it looks like he won't be playing in the blue and bronze for a long time, if ever. Pisani is going to be out for what looks like the whole season, and as far as I know, Moreau won't be playing opening night.

But on the upside, Cogliano, Gagner and Pouliot have all proven their worth enough to earn slots with the big club.

So, what wil the line-up look like? This is what I'm expecting:

Penner, Horcoff, Hemsky
Torres, Stoll, Sanderson
Brodziak, Reasoner, Nillson
Gagner, Cogliano, Pouliot
Extra: Stortini

Pitkanen, Staios
Greene, Souray
Smid, Tarnstrom
Extra: Gilbert, Grebeshkov

Not all of these line ups are the ones I'd make were I MacT, but he's confirmed there'll be two extra D-men, that Gagner, Cogliano and Pouliot will play together, and all but confirmed that Pensky will play with Horcoff.
