Barring a trade, Knuble seems like a likely trade bait for salary reasons but not sure how difficult it would be to move him. In the event he's traded I feel Hartnell should take his place. Upshall moves up and Downie gets more ice-time.
Timonen - Coburn
Eminger - Jones
Vaananen - Kukkonen
I just don't see Hatcher playing a full-time role, he will most likely be placed on LITR and used for a playoff run.
I'm not to kean on the defence, but reserve judgement until I see the likes of Eminger and Vaananen play consitently.
Knuble can not play with Briere. Watching 2-3 games last year clearly shows that.
I would switch him with either Harntell, Giroux or Lupul.
Also, Eminger and Jones are the same player and Kukkonen and Vaananen are basically the same player, should split those two pairings.
Otherwise, I like where you are headed.
