With the training camp fast approaching, its almost (but not quite) time for roster/line-up speculation fun. Lombardi will most likely be making another move or two before the season begins, but regardless, there will be some open spots for hungry rookies to nab in camp. The defense has lost O’Donnell and Jones, and added nobody. The forwards are down Frolov, Modin and Halpern with only Ponikarovsky to fill the gap so far.
Schenn, Clifford, Lewis, Loktionov, Fransson, Muzzin, Hickey and more will be battling it out the fill out the Kings’ 4th line and 3rd defensive pairing.
How many rookies do you think we will see on the opening night roster? Discuss in the comments who you think will be the lucky ones to skate on NHL ice?

I’m going with 3. Clifford, Schenn, Fransson.
