This is how I think the lines should be once Gui is back...
Latendresse - Koivu - Tanguay
Higgins - Plekanec - A. Kostitsyn
Sergei - Lang - Kovalev
Begin/Laraque - Lapierre - Kostopoulos
Koivu and Tanguay played their best hockey when they were with Latendresse and Gui was playing a lot better before he got hurt so I think once he's back he should play with those two.
Kovalev's line looked alright for some shifts yesterday but Andrei is a totally different player away from him and Plekanec has done nothing with Kovalev for most of the season, all 3 of these guys have tons of speed and Pleks/Kostitsyn won't have Kovalev slowing them down anymore.
Playing on a third line would most likely help Kovalev as he'd play against less skilled lines and not as good defenceman and having Sergei will help make up for the lack of speed the other 2 guys have.
