Niklas Hagman - Alex Steen - Alexei Ponikarovsky

Jason Blake - Matt Stajan - Jiri Tlusty

Jamal Mayers - Dominic Moore - Ryan Hollweg

Boyd Devereaux - Mark Bell - John Mitchell

Mitchell is skating on the 5th line in practice with the bubble players still working hard and trying to crack the 23 man roster.
Grabovski is clearly the more skilled player over Mitchell.

I like that Wilson is playing Grabo with Kulemin.... he's giving Kulemin an opportunity to communicate and have fun on the ice. Although I think that Ponikarovsky would better suit the line, being that Poni is faster then Antro and also because he plays the LW.

Tlusty Steen Antropov
Ponikarovsky Grabovski Kulemin
Hagman Stajan Blake
Hollweg Moore Mayers

Putting Antropov/Tlusty on Steen's line, would be the long awaited moment that Steen/Tlusty are finally given reasonably talented linemates to work with. Hagman/Stajan/Blake form a great 3rd line, and only belong on the 3rd line.
