Rupp - Stepan - MZA
Fedotenko - Boyle - Prust

That gives you a checking 4th line, but also a 2nd line that's got two very solid defensive players. Both of your top lines have a defensive presence, but also the ability to score. Stepan and MZA have a (very) big body with a lot of experience to open up space for their creativity, go to the net, and stick up for them if the situation calls for it.
For what its worth I agree with you completely.

That would be the lineup I play for game one.
