I'd prefer to see

Palushaj Plekanec Cole or Moen Plekanec Cole
Pacioretty Gomez Gionta
Moen Eller Kostitsyn(worked great last year) or Palushaj Eller Kostitsyn
Desharnais Engqvist Darche.

Desharnais played better last game, but he really seems to struggle at the center position in the defensive zone. Last year it wasn't as noticable because he got 4th line duties at even-strength. This year he is being matched up with the opposing team's second or third line. He's struggled defensively in pre-season and the last two games with increased responsibility at center. I'd like to see him play wing for now.

I would prefer for the offense to be balanced. Also I want Eller playing with an actual scoring winger. A lot of his plays last year went unfinished because he played with grinders.

Also give Palushaj top duty or put him with Kostitsyn and Eller. Let's see what he can do in an offensive role. He's an offensive minded prospect, so let's give him the opportunity to show what he can do.
