Top 9 should consist of Richards, Carter, Giroux, Briere, Leino, Hartnell, JVR, Zherdev, and Nodl. Betts, Shelley, and Powe all fit the 4th line roles well. Powe's willingness to play a physical game isn't going to be wasted there. That line (apart from Shelley) is capable of playing a decent chunk of minutes.
I do not see Nodl giving much more of an upside, the guys problem has been that he cannot finish. At least with Powe you know what you are going to get and his ability to go to the net is a very valuable asset with Carter and Giroux. Maybe they moveo JvR back to a line with Giroux and Carter and Nodl with Richards and Zherdev but at this point I am really tired of watching Zherdev.
