I really wanna see Pleks centering the Kostitsyn brothers. I think they will have incredible chemistry and they would be a very very fast line.
Latendresse always done good with Koivu, so put him on a line with him and Tanguay and see what he can do.
Kovalev and Lang might have some magic left in them, put hard-working Higgins on their line and it could be dangerous as well.
4th line is self explanitory....they go out and muck it up.
Defence is pretty much the same as last year. I hope O'Byrne plays more than Brisebois, but thats about it.
Price and Halak are going to compete and provide great goaltending for the team.
Kovalev would need to play away from Lang/Higgins for a certain amount of time per game, he needs a mininum of 18-19 minutes per game to be effective... I don't think Lang will get more then that, and Higgins might get that from PK time.
A.Kost-Pleks-Kovalev (ain't broke, don't fix... Was a top 5 line in the league last year, not 6 years ago ala:Lang/Kovalev)
