NHL: Carolina Hurricanes at Columbus Blue Jackets Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

We all have different ideas on what lines and pairs will be used by the Jackets and Monsters to start the season, so let’s have a fun discussion in the comments with what lines / pairs / groupings you think the teams will ice when the NHL and AHL seasons begin. It’s a big caveat, but assume no injuries for the sake of this exercise.

Here are mine:
