I feel Ovechkin's and Johansson's more north/south speed games compliment each other better than Backstrom's and Semin's more east/west shifty games.

I also don't think Knuble can keep up with Ovechkin and Johansson when they are on a line together so Brouwer is a better fit with those two with Knuble being given more time to get where he needs to go while Semin and Backstrom play with the puck.

So if it were me I would like to see Ovechkin-Johansson-Brouwer and Semin-Backstrom-Knuble.

That being said I completely agree that Boudreau sees Semin as a right winger now, even though IMO he is a better player on the left, so I don't see that happening.
