Here'd be the Team Ontario B-Team:

Hoffman-Horvat-J. Anderson
Athanasiou-Domi-Bailey
Konecny-Kadri-T. Wilson
J.Williams-Thornton-Staal
 
Ellis-Brodie
Muzzin-Miller
Ekblad-Nurse

Hutton
McElhinney/M. Smith

You're scraping the botom of the barrel a bit goaltending wise but pretty remarkable that the province's B-team would still be a legit international competitor and/or Stanley Cup contender.

Man, those bottom two lines are going to get eaten alive. Just absolutely destroyed.

I tried finding someone more in the know who has done their projected lines but I couldn't find anything. Then I tried doing it myself... and I just couldn't. There's a real chance they have Brown at RW1 though...

Is Brown better than Bobby Ryan now? Either way, one line is for scoring (haha), and the other is for shutdown (hopefully).

Tkachuk - Anisimov - Ryan
Boedker - Pageau - Brown
Ennis - Tierney - Duclair
Carcone - White - Veronneau

Chabot - Zaitsev
Hainsey - DeMelo
Brannstrom - Jaros
Borowieki, Wolanin

Anderson
Nilsson

Random factoid while I was looking into that: It took MacKinnon 5 seasons and 374 games to score 114 goals. Matthews has 111 in 3 seasons and 212 games.

Note to self:  Explore Matthews goal scoring ability.  Decide whether he is good at that.

Ottawa might actually have better depth than Edmonton. :o

Thanks to all the players Leafs fans wanted to get rid of...

Even that 2nd line has to be among the worst 2nd lines in the league.

Yeah. It's not great, but all three guys on it have at least one 20+ goal season . . .  :-X

In all seriousness, I think the combination of RNH and Neal could make for a perfectly reasonable 2nd line, assuming Neal bounces back some. It's not a good 2nd line, but it's not a terrible one, either. Probably in the lower third of the league, but not at the bottom of the barrel.

Nope, and that's probably the only reason Edmonton will finish ahead of them. That being said, if Ottawa gets reasonable goaltending this season, they're not going to get embarrassed nearly as frequently as I imagine the Oilers will. They're going to make teams work a lot harder to beat them than people expect for what will likely be a last place team.

What are the other two lines for?  Getting coffee before morning skates?

Watching Ennis and Carcone try to do everything solo.
