I think that will end up being a very productive line.

I guess this means it's either Pesonen or Tank (Fedotenko) as the LW on Sid's line. Loser gets demoted to the 3rd line with Max and Dupuis. The 4th line center job is also open - Jeff Taffe and Ryan Stone will be competing for that job. Given the choice, I'd take Stone for his grit and his willingness to drop the gloves.
speaking of Pesonen-

it shows the line combos they had for the other day, it had Janne on the 4th line checking. i can see Pesonen creeping up on the the top line, every1 said he is catching on quick
