Mostly 3rd line vs 3rd line if I can. Use them to neutralize Hartford's 3rd line (which they're capable of doing) and have the advantage with the better second line in terms of both offense and defense going against the Thornton line.

Makarov's speed definitely is a concern. It was noted that it was believed Balon's legs were gone when he ran into the onset of MS during his career so that would imply that he was a good skater, but I'd definitely like to find more evidence prior to that to really tell for sure. Also any evidence that he can play on the right wing would be helpful as well since Hossa definitely has the pace to keep up, though he's not quite as strong defensively as Balon was.
