I'm not so sure about that yet. Huskins stabilizes the penalty kill and adds another veteran presence to the D. While Braun adds a lot more offensive threat, I feel more comfortable with Huskins for the defensive aspect. Braun still has a few rookie mistakes every game and I'm not too sure how that would go over in the post-season.
Not to mention the Huskins - Demers line was really solid at the end of last season and this season.

Murray - Boyle
Vlasic - White
Huskins - Demers

You have a puck mover on every line paired with a pretty solid defensive partner.

Which adds to my confusion on what Todd McLellan has been thinking the last few games. He should've initially paired White with Vlasic to build some chemistry. Wallin clearly should be the odd-man out, so there is no point in developing any chemistry with him at the moment. With Boyle and Huskin's injury, I would've gone with
Murray - Braun
Vlasic - White
Wallin - Demers
