If it does not work, try Tanguay. He's got a great shot, superb vision and he is pretty good defensively.
Sergei Kostitsyn is also a good backup solution even though he lacks NHL experience. He played that position in Hamilton and London, so it's not new to him.
One thing is sure, I would like, at least for the start of the season, to run the power play with 4 forwards and see the results. If we are too vulnerable defensively, we might need to use two defensemen. In this situation, Hamrlik, Brisebois or may be gorges if he increases his offensive skills this year.
Andrei on the point of the first PP unit is not a bad idea. You'd have:
LW: Lang (he has the same move from the circle as kovy, but on the left side). Check his vids out
LD: Andrei (Markov)
LW: Higgs or Tender, depending who's hot that night
