Higgins-Plekanec-Dandenault : Dandenault is playing well and bringing speed and forechecking - might be what Plek needs right now. Higgins back on wing where he's more effective.
Kostopoulos-Lapierre-Pacioretty : creates a line that approximates the Kost-Lap-Lats line that had so much success a few months ago.
Stewart-Chipchura-Begin : 4th line, who cares really - but I take out Laraque for Stewart to bring team speed up a little. Chipchura at center to free Begin to the wing where he's more effective.

I'd like to see those practice D pairings given a try.
WOE that's a competitive and talented NHL team. I guess all GM in the league are drooling over a lineup like that. Hardwork combined with talent, youth and leadership. Stanley Cup here we come! Pleks and dandenault combo plus the soft hands of Higgins not to mention the creativity and vision of begin and Chips together on the ice....
