A look ahead to Friday 5-Oct-2007

If it were me putting in the opening night line up here is what I’d do:

Line 122 D Sedin33 H Sedin26 R Shannon
Line 29 T Pyatt17 R Kesler19 M Naslund C
Line 324 M Cooke7 B Morrison*16 T Linden A
Line 420 J Cowan15 B Ritchie27 B Isbister
Defence 18 W Mitchell A3 K Bieksa
Defence 22 M Ohlund23 A Edler
Defence 35 L Krajicek4 A Miller
Goal 1 R Luongo Back Up 41 C Sanford

Injured Reserve: 6 S Salo**, (?7 B Morrison?)

Healthy Scratches: 25 D McGillis, 14 A Burrows, 21 M Raymond

* If Morrison is injured then send Raymond to the Moose and replace Morrison with Rypien. If Rypien is unavailable due to suspension then move Linden to Center and put Raymond in on the right side of either the 3rd or 4th line and adjust as needed.

** When Salo’s wrist is healed, swap out the least performing of Miller and Edler and pair Salo with Ohlund.
