The Leafs' Top Line: Who Will Join Matthews and Marner?

With the multitude of acquisitions orchestrated by Brad Treliving since his arrival at the helm of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the composition of the team's first line has become a subject of debate.
While it's clear that Matthews and Marner will be on that line, the third spot remains open for consideration, with several contenders in the mix.
David Alter provided insights into the combinations employed by Coach Keefe during the initial 10 minutes of practice.

Could it Be Matthews, Marner, and Bertuzzi on Toronto's Premier Line?

Here's what Alter unveiled:
The first 10 minutes of practice have been skating drills. Most notable is that the trio of Bertuzzi-Matthews-Marner is skating together in one of the drills. Another is Knies-Tavares-Lafferty.
While it's expected that the Leafs might experiment with various line combinations throughout the season, it's intriguing to observe that, for the time being, Bertuzzi has secured his place in the lineup.
Bertuzzi arguably stands as Treliving's top addition this summer, possessing the capability to make an impact in every game—a quality that Toronto has been seeking for a while.
Teaming up with Matthews and Marner is likely to bolster his performance this season and potentially pave the way for him to negotiate a significant salary increase next year.
Do you believe Bertuzzi is the right fit for the first line?
