Brandon Pirri is going to center a line in the season opener in Dallas, on Friday. Dave Bolland isn't going to make the trip. Ben Smith is doubtful for Friday. Carcillo will serve his two game suspension during the home-n-home series.
Brandon Saad will be Jonathan Toews wing man on the first line along with Patrick Sharp. This will be a very exciting time for the rookie, and one worth watching. Does he impress the staff enough to stick past the 9 games. Even though the likelihood is slim, it will be fun watching the 18yr old to see his moxie.
