Your defensive pairings are alright, except i don't see Kukks getting too much time unless there is an injury (not that he doesn't deserve to play). Here's how i see it playing out (and somewhat hope)

Timmonen-Coburn
Eminger-Parent
Vannanen/Kukkonen-Jones/Kukkonen



Except Eminger has much more upside than Jones. If you pair Eminger with a solid D-man and give him some good coaching (rico anyone?) could wind up being Coburn #2
I definitely agree Eminger has much more upside than Jones...I was really just talking from a style standpoint, I rather have the puck rusher paired with someone who is more defensive.
