What we need is for the team to put Scott Hartnell back on the first line (he's the first line grit), the return of Scott Walker (he's the second line grit), the return of Adam Hall (he's the third line grit), and some changes to the defensive pairings.
I don't like pairing off similar defensemen together. Put Dan Markov with Marek Zidlicky, so Markov can cover Zidlicky's @ss. Put Dan Hamhuis with Kimmo Timonen, so Timonen doesn't have as much pressure to score. Put Mark Eaton with Ryan Suter - the added responsibility of watching the rookie might bring Eaton back into form.
Just a couple of ideas. Maybe you'd want to keep Hamhuis and Suter together, since they've played so well; but we have to break up Timonen and Zidlicky, and Eaton and Markov. Put Eaton with Timonen. Timonen's consistent play might spark the Eaton of old to return.
