I don't see Kovy and Parise playing together all season.
Kovy - Elias - Zubes
Parise - Zajac - Henrique
Tedenby - Josefson - Clarkson
Sykora - Carter - Boulton/Janssen
Sykie will get PP minutes but less at even strength as the season goes on.
I'd imagine someone will get traded for a defenseman before the season is over. I'm hoping it's not Henrique. I have a feeling it will be Josefson.
I just don't see Sykora on the 4th line doesn't make much sense to me
