    Small change for the leafs would be Joey Anderson over Spezza. Possible Robertson over Engvall as well. Dubas said he wants more grit and toughness in the bottom 6. So Essentially

    Hyman - Tavares -Marner
    Mikheyev - Mathews - Nylander
    Vesey - Kerfoot - Simmonds
    Robertson - Thorton - Anderson

    Other than, its all good.

    Spezza gonna be scratched? I’m a Leafs fan and finding that one tough to believe. Is there any sources that would lend to the idea that Anderson would be in over Spezza? Keefe loves him and he showed his value in the play-ins big.

    Spezza has a really good chance to be scratched. Dubas said that Joey Anderson is pretty much a lock to make the lineup, unless he just lays an egg in training camp.

    Also, singing Joe Thornton pushed Spezza out of the lineup. No reason to have 2 old slow players in the bottom 6. Not to mention Wayne Simmonds is there as well (albeit he isn't as slow as the other 2).

    Dubas mentioned several times that he needed to make the bottom 6 tougher to play against. Its highly likely Spezza is kept as an injury replacement player and locker room presence.

    Just my two cents as a Bruins fan, while Marchand and Pasta are out, I don’t see them shifting Coyle up to 1st line winger, they will try Craig Smith in that spot, especially since Bergeron was supposedly one of the driving factors in pursuing Smith

    Coyle would center Ritchie and Kuhlman/Studnicka and Kuraly would take his normal spot between Wagner and Lindholm on the 4th

    also it’s highly likely they have Zboril up to compete for that 3rd line role or even on the 2nd pair so that Carlo can act as a safety net pushing Lauzon down to the 3rd pair where his skill set is better suited anyways...Moore is likely to be the 7th and Miller on the Taxi squad

    all speculation but based on their roster moves that’s their goal, especially on the blueline, they didn’t let Chara go so that John Moore or Kevan Miller could play more, IMO

    From what The Bruins last stated, they expect him to be in the lineup opening night.

    What I have been reading is that he is expected to be in the lineup opening night. He skated with a non-contact Jersey today

    Sabres to make announcement, sounds like Girgensons looks to have had a season ending injury. Dylan Cozens likely replacement.

    Edit: apparently he’s ahead of schedule since he’s partaking in camp practices already

    Added "Unavailable" and "Taxi" to the notes section. Will add in more players to Scratched/Taxi as rosters finalize.

    Hello everyone - Happy Game Day!

    As of right now this document is tracking the lines for Game 1 but just a reminder that once each team gets going, the lines are a reflection of what happened the night prior. So while it is appreciated, you don't need to send me lines on game day and whatnot to tell me to update. It'll be done the next morning/afternoon. Thanks!
