Something like...
Cammalleri - Plekanec/Other UFA - A. Kostitsyn
Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta
Lapierre - Moore - Moen
White - Desharnais - Pyatt
When we had a kid line for a game this year, it worked a bit, and White and Pyatt now have some experience under their belt. Give D.D. a little PP time, and see how it goes.
Trotter should play a few games next year assuming he's back, but he won't have a full time spot barring something crazy.
I don't think Desh should be on the 4th. Being small and offensively gifted , it's just not his element.
