Plekanec between Kovalev-Andrei Kostitsyn (you don't mess with success)
Koivu between Tanguay-Higgins (maybe the best 2-way line in the league)

After that, fill in the blanks:
Chipchura between Laraque-Kostopoulos/Begin probably becomes your energy line
Sergei between Latendresse and Lapierre is all that's left, but then why wouldn't you just let Lapierre play center? Maybe they do see a Pacioretty or D'Agostini having a shot.

Or maybe Kyle Chipchura is the Trade bait that will help Gainey to acquires a veteran 3rd line Center
