Kostitsyn-Lombardi-Erat (a LOT of speed on this line)
Belak as the permascratch
Tootoo as the other scratch, but rotating in with the other fourth liners to get playing time


I'm hoping that the solid two-way play of Lombardi will make it so that Legwand doesn't have to be focused purely on a shutdown role this year, because he showed in the playoffs (just like he showed when he was part of the 9-10-11 line) that when he's put in a more offensive role he can produce. But on a line with Smithson and Ward he won't do much. A line with Smithson, Goc and Ward ought to be able to work as a decent shutdown line as well. It's not as high-energy as a traditional fourth line but all of those guys can play physically and solid defensively, plus there's actually a bit of offensive talent there with Ward and Goc.
