Honestly I am all for giving O'Connor a shot. Looked good in training camp and he even was on the PP2 in practice. I would love him to get a chance. I think the Zucker-Malkin-Rust line has been the weakest thus far. I would love to see Guentzel back on that line, because they had some real chemistry before he got hurt last year. Zucker and Sid also looked great together in the playoffs. I would go:
Zucker-Crosby-Kapanen
Guentzel-Malkin-Rust
McCann-Jankowski-Tanev
O'Connor-Blueger-Sceviour
(ZAR will also be back soon, wonder what they do then)
Defensively, I dont know who to put where between Ruhwedel and Ceci. I want POJ to be with the steadier dman, so Ruhwedel, but then again, I dont want Ceci on top 4 minutes. Its tough haha.

I think the solution to the Ceci or Ruhwedel problem is to sit both of them and play Maniscalco.......but here comes the incoming horrible decision to play Ceci instead.
