Depends on who makes the team, and what happens with Redden.

So to that, I have three scenarios.

1-Lineup with Redden:

Prospal-Christensen-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Zuccarello
Avery-Drury-Callahan
Byers-Boyle-Weise
ex-Prust, Boogaard

Staal-Girardi
Del Zotto-Rozsival
Redden-McDonagh*
ex-Gilroy

Lundqvist
Biron

*I don't like defensemen on their "offwing"


2-With OUT Redden

Prospal-Christensen-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Zuccarello
Avery-Drury-Callahan
Byers-Boyle-Weise
ex-Prust, Boogaard

Staal-Girardi
Del Zotto-Rozsival
McDonagh-Gilroy
ex-Valentenko/Pashnin/Sauer

Lundqvist
Biron


3-With OUT Redden and WITH Stepan and Grachev

Drury-Christensen-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Zuccarello
Prospal-Stepan-Grachev
Avery-Boyle-Callahan
ex-Prust, Boogaard

Staal-Girardi
Del Zotto-Rozsival
McDonagh-Gilroy
ex-Valentenko/Pashnin/Sauer

Lundqvist
Biron


I'll go with option #2, Stepan and Grachev in Hartford for the year developing in big roles.

Redden in Hartford freeing up cap space, McDonagh replacing him.

Gilroy in the lineup improving on his rookie season. You don't give up on a defenseman that can skate like him and has hands like him. You just don't.
