According to Gord Wilson, the Sens are playing 11 forwards and 7 defencemen tonight. Here are the lines and pairings:

Hoffman - Turris - Dzingel

Varone - Brassard - Ryan

Puempel - Kelly - Neil

Pyatt - Pageau

Methot - Karlsson

Phaneuf - Ceci

Chabot - Borowiecki

Wideman

Anderson (starter)

Hammond

This is pretty close to the players the Sens will run on opening night. The fact that Chabot is still here and getting a chance means he may be sticking around with the big club, at least for the first nine games. Also of note is that Ryan Dzingel and Phil Varone seem to be the favourites to stick with the team. I guess having 11 forwards means they will get rotated around, but Matt Puempel seems to have proven in camp that he isn't a favourite to stick with the big club, at least based on his being ascribed to the checking/fourth line.
