a possible set of 1st and 2nd lines

with the uncertainty surrounding comrie's return to the oilers, mact is planning his lines without him. I like the smyth at centre experiment as it solves the ago-old lack of size issue (smyth and horcoff are both 6'1"). It appears that he has developed a chemistry with isbister so it make sense to keep them together. The obvious winger is hemsky but how about this?

isbister - smyth - york
devo - horcoff - hemsky

the reason for this proposal is that it gives us a veteran number one line to eat up the minutes. Without isbister performing, we are in a lot of trouble and this gives him every opportunity to succeed. York is excellent defensively so that may make up for smyth's learning curve at centre.

I am hoping that devo and hemsky can develop some chemistry. Both are czechs and devo's best year was with two other czechs in new york. It makes sense for them to be together.

The other lines would feature a rita / reasoner and a torres / laraque pairing with a third player.
