What lines would you like to see?

While the current lines are an improvement over the hodgepodge of players we had taking to the ice last season, I do see a need to mix things up.

I would like to see the following lines for a few games...

Line A:
Rucinsky-Lindros-Lundmark
Not first line, just one of our top 2 lines. Not really sure which our "first" line should be.
I see Lindros crashing the net and Lundmark and Rucinsky cycling the puck down low. This line also has decent North-South movement up the ice. And has the tools to do a good job back-checking.
Line B:
Hlavac-Nedved-Kovalev
The experiment should continue... The fruits of this line clicking is just too valuable to pass up.
Third Line:
LaCouture-Holik-Carter
Carter gets the demotion. His play hasn't warranted top line ice time. Holik and LaCouture provide the defensive staple of the line while Carter tries to bang in the odd goal.
Fourth Line:
Barnaby-Messier-Keefe
Simon is the odd man out. He gets benched until someone is injured or in the dog house. I like the Barnaby/Messier pairing. Barnaby seems to energize Messier. When Mess is out there without him, the old man tends to look lazy. Keefe is the young blood and hopefully adds some energy to this line.
