    Through pre-season and game one, the lines have looked good for the most part, but I would like to see Babcock switch Ennis and Kapanen. I think Kappy's, size, speed, and 2 way game would compliment Matthews and Marleau, and allow them to play a heavy cycle game in the offensive zone.

    Marleau - Matthews - Kapanen
    Hyman - - Tavares - - Marner
    Ennis - - - - Kadri - - - - Brown
    Johnsson - - Lindholm - - Leivo

    I'd agree. Give Kappy a chance with Matthews and Marleau. When Nylander's back put him with Kadri

    Without Nylander

    Marleau Matthews Kapanen
    Hyman Tavares Marner
    Leivo Kadri Brown
    Johnsson Lindholm Ennis

    With Nylander

    Marleau Matthews Nylander
    Hyman Tavares Marner
    Leivo Kadri Kapanen
    Johnsson Lindholm Brown

    kappy is possession beast, and at the very least he has the strength to grind along the boards and keep up with Matthews for the most part.

    I don’t like the Idea if Brown/Leivo with Matthews, they don’t have the skill needed to compliment him imo

    This looks very good to me. Pretty much exactly how I would do things. With Hainsey on the hot seat.

    Any line up with Ennis anywhere other than on the 4th line or in the press box is wrong.
