With the lockout finally over, P. A. Parenteau might get put on a line with Matt Duchene.
"I signed here because I knew there were a lot of good forwards and an opportunity to play with great players. I'll play with whoever they want me to play," Parenteau said. "I think I'd be a good match with Dutchy, for sure. I don't think he had the season he wanted last year, with all the injuries. But he looks pretty good out there, looks ready to go." Many suspect that Parenteau's success in recent years is due to him playing alongside John Tavares. While that certainly didn't hurt, Parenteau should get plenty of opportunities in Colorado and we don't expect him to suffer a significant drop in production.
