So more like this?

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble
Brouwer-Johansson-Semin
Chimera-Laich-Ward
Hendricks-Halpern-Sjogren



And I think eakin really could surprise us and make the team and be a good energy guy with some scoring touch.
Also I see know way Laich is the 2C. He isn't offensive enough to fill that role. He's fine as a 2LW but if he's playing center he's much better off as the 3C with he and ward as the anchors in a gritty shutdown line that can chip in offensively.

@ Brave Sir

Idc about the stats. Johansson was our best player in the playoffs. The last couple days I watched the first 2 lightning games on NHL Network. He was the only one on the team that moved his feet all the time. And more importantly, he just had so much more energy than everyone else. Everytime he touched the puck something happened, and if he didn't have it he'd fly into the offensive zone down the wing. IMO he was clearly our best player in the playoffs. I'm really excited to see him play again and think he will be that 2C that we've been looking for in years past.
