A Look At Detroit’s Lineup

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

While next season will be lighter on recent prospects because they’re better off overseas, there are fresh faces who certainly look like they will make the team more competitive.

Here is a prediction of the lineup on opening night.

Valtteri Filppula-Robby Fabbri-Anthony Mantha

We know Larkin, Mantha and Bertuzzi have chemistry, but I’d like to see Mantha with more of a playmaker than Larkin and Fabbri could fit that bill. He has played more center than wing in his career, and he’s creative with the puck.
