Everything's still a work in progress at this point as to determining fit.

We've toyed with the idea of Stevens - Malone - Anderson and Kilrea - Gilmour - Tocchet with Whitney as a 4th liner/PP specialist.

As for the defensive assignments, the Goring line most likely, though that's not to say that Gilmour couldn't hold his own there. But Goring is just a better fit as a defensive center, freeing up Gilmour, and Dineen has a pretty good reputation as a two-way player as well, especially once he moved on from Hartford.
