We'll pick the perfect complimentary player for the two highly-skilled but small speedsters on our first line:

Nick Mickoski, LW

Beginning in the 1948-49 season, "Broadway Nick" spent parts of seven seasons with the Rangers. After scoring 20 points in 1949-50, he helped the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup finals for the last time in 22 years. During the overtime period of the seventh game, he hit the post then watched Pete Babando become a hero in Motown. In 1950-51, he hit the 20-goal mark while teamed with Ed Slowinski and Don Raleigh.

Mickoski joined the Chicago Black Hawks in 1954-55 and was a fine two- way worker with Ed Litzenberger and Red Sullivan. He was picked up by the Detroit Red Wings halfway through the 1957-58 season and made his first playoff appearance in eight years. After playing 66 games for the club in 1958-59, he was acquired by the Boston Bruins where he played his last half season.
