I'd see something like Halak and Sergei and a 3rd, for Barker
Barker is terrible in his end, if it wasn't for those guys, he'd be exposed on a regular basis. He's a great OD on the PP, but he rarely plays more then 15 minutes a game, and most of it is on the powerplay, where he gets his points. Don't expect him to be in your top 4 unless you pair him up with someone who can make up for his lack of defensive abilities.
