Problem with Hemsky and Dvo on the same line is the obvious: They're both right handed RW's. Unless Dvo can play center or left, I don't see them fitting unless they're on the same PP unit.
MacT already stated that he doesn't want to use Chimera at center. The real issue on this team is on LW. Assuming Comrie signs or is dealt for another bigger center, that makes Smyth, York (or center), Isbister, Chimera, Moreau, Rita and Torres as LW. That's why it makes sense, for the time being, to have Smyth in that role.
I completely agree with the Hemsky - Smyth combo. Pisani is a 3rd liner at best, but once again the MacT penchant for going with try-hards as opposed to talent rears it's head. Hemsky doesn't need to be eased in anymore, he proved he's ready for prime time at the end of last season. He and Smyth are the closest thing to a one-two punch we have.
