Kelly-Fisher-Alfredsson Line 2a
Zherdev-Regin-Butler Line 2b
Foligno-Winchester-O'Brien/Smith Line 3

Now we have an actual first line, where everyone is comfortable. You can interchange Michalek at anytime with Butler, Zherdev, Alfredsson, or w/e. But now every line serves a purpose and each playing style is matched. Not only that, but our team speed goes up about 50% with that line-up.
Trade Phillips at the deadline or let him walk. Tops sign him at 2.5
Have we not learned our lesson yet with Russian players?
