I would put d'Agostini ahead of Stewart. Even if you want to pair up Koivu and Tanguay (I would prefer to try the top three vets on three different lines), I would make the following changes: d'Ago in Latendresse's spot, and Latendresse in Stewart's spot.

Pacioretty Plekanec Kovalev
Tanguay Koivu Kostitsyn
Higgins Lapierre d'Agostini
Latendresse Metropolit Kostopolous

Another option is to insert Stewart for Metropolit, moving Higgins to Center.

Pacioretty Plekanec Kovalev
Latendresse Koivu Kostitsyn
Tanguay Higgins d'Agostini
Stewart Lapierre Kostopolous
...spares: Metropolit, Dandenault
...move: Laraque
...Hamilton: Chipchura

What I like about these lines is that each of the top three combinations has a proven productive veteran, an established 24-26 yo to second him, and a 20-22 yo with offensive potential to round them out. Each of the lines has playmaking as well as finishing ability. I would not want to be the opposing coach and try to figure out who to match my defensive specialists against!
