Sedin - Lapierre -Samuelsson
Sturm - Hodgson - Burrows
Hansen - Malhotra - Nolan
Higgins - Duco - Oreskovich

Because Malhotra is more of a defensive centre, I'd rather he stay on the third line, let Lapierre handle the pressure on the top line and let Hodgson mature on the 2nd line. Duco in my opinion is better suited to handle 4th line centre than Ebbett. I can't see Schoeder being NHL ready at all for the start of the season.
watch Lapierre get the Rocket Richard
