Cammalleri-Plekanec-Gionta
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole
Eller-Gomez-Kostitsyn
Moen-Nokelainen-Weber

Markov-Gorges
Spacek-Subban
Gill-Campoli

Darche as the 13th forward, Emelin as the 7th defenseman. Maybe swap Gill and Spacek because of the history between Gill and Subban, but I think Spacek is better-suited for that 2nd pairing.

I think the team actually values Diaz more than Emelin (maybe even the players, as Gorges said he was the young d-man who impressed him the most), but given the circumstances surrounding both players it'd be easier to send Diaz to the minors.
I don't see how Campoli fits in the lineup with both Gill and Spacek in.

And I'm personally sick of seeing Weber on the 4th line. If they want to keep him as a defenceman, then they should play him at D.

Let the guy who they hired after the fact on a temporary basis play at forward...
