Sharks Playoff Lines

Some of this discussed in Trade Deadline thread, but thought this would be a good separate topic.

Fear the Fins's suggestions for Playoff lines.

Quote:
Dany Heatley - Joe Thornton - Devin Setoguchi
Patrick Marleau - Joe Pavelski - Manny Malhotra
Jamie McGinn - Logan Couture - Ryane Clowe
Jed Ortmeyer - Scott Nichol - Torrey Mitchell/Brad Staubitz
Mine are similar but would be...

Dany Heatley - Joe Thornton - Devin Setoguchi
Patrick Marleau - Joe Pavelski - Benn Ferriero
Jed Ortmeyer - Scott Nichol - Ryane Clowe
Jamie McGinn - Logan Couture - Manny Malhotra

This gives us four legitimate lines that can score and get minutes. The last two lines are really 3a and 3b. Ortymeyer/Nichol/Clowe had good chemistry earlier in the season. I like adding Malhotra to McGinn and Couture as he would add a defensive presence to that line but could also compliment with some scoring.

I would then put Clowe on 2nd PP Unit.
