I think the 1st line, you just continue making Tangradi play a dumb man's game. Go to the net. That's about it.

2nd line you have Laich helping Geno on draws and he brings an element that Geno has worked well with before

3rd line would be our x-factor. I also think it'd keep Kunitz healthy for 82 games.

That'd probably be the best offensive 4th line in the league. I know people don't like Letestu in that spot, but I really think he could handle it. He's not overly physical but he plays mistake free hockey, and is a jack of all trades.
Maybe in a year. Tangradi is not ready for top line duty. Also, we need Matt Cooke in the lineup or at least another player like him. I think we need a bit more grit in the bottom 6 than that.
