If Stalberg doesn't become a top 6 forward, he'll fill out your 3rd line.
I think Naslund was kept because he had great chemistry with Bertuzzi and Morrison. The Anaheim kids (I assume you're referring to Getzlaf and Perry) were kept because they fit his mold perfectly. I do think he'll keep Schenn, J. Mitchell and some others who fit the mold. But like I said I highly doubt that the top two lines will be a combination of Grabovski, Tlusty, Kulemin, Hagman, Ponikarovski and Stajan.
