The Pack line is great in cycling down low and has real chemistry and allows Dubinsky to work below the goal line and Anisimov to set up in the slot which he loves. All three players are solid in all three zones and are a solid second line. The third line of WW-Stepan-MZA, did play well in stretches last season and should have a shot at the beginning of the year atleast to see what they could build on. The fourth line of Rupp-Boyle-Prust will be a gritty solid line to match up against teams. Remember last year the Feds-Boyle-Prust line was technically the fourth line but played solid minutes.

Feds-Richards-Gaborik
Dubi-Anisimov-Callahan
WW-Stepan-MZA
Rupp-Boyle-Prust
You give richards and gaborik feds, youre basically going with Dubinsky minus the first line production
