But what makes you so confident that Zids is out? There seems to be conflicting reports out there.
The problem with Hamhuis is that he shoots the puck into blocked shots all the time. He probably leads the team in that category. That can be extremely costly on the PP with a shorthanded chance going the other way. Assuming that Zidlikcy is out (take if for what you will), my vote would go to Sullivan on the opposite point. Erat-Johansson-Walker-Sullivan-Timonen (Hartnell, Hall, and Stevenson a possiblity to park themselves in front of the net).
