What combinations jump out at you? For me, the Blue Team's trio of Colin Wilson, Matt Cullen & Viktor Stalberg might well be Nashville's top line at the start of the season, and I wonder if Rich Clune, Paul Gaustad & Matt Hendricks on the White Team might represent the new 4th line.

No matter what, it will be interesting to see how things develop over the next three weeks as we gear up for the season opener on October 3rd at St. Louis...
