Schenn - Phaneuf
Aulie - Liles
Komisarek - Gunnarsson
Each pair gets a good mix of puck movement/stay at home defence. Perhaps switch Komi and Aulie IF Komisarek regains his form.
from what i've seen Schenn is quite terrible on the Left side (right handed shooter). if schenn is the odd man out in all of this he's surely to be considered trade bate. uhh orrrr maybe not.
