Jokinen can handle the defensive responsibilities of the center position and benefit from Huberdeau's playmaking skills by putting his (hopefully still) world class shot to use.

Upshall brings the sandpaper, but can score and benefit from #11 skills as well. He can provide some physical protection - not a big guy but not afraid to get in someone's face if someone decides to take liberties.

Fleischmann-Weiss-Versteeg
Huberdeau-Jokinen-Upshall
Bergenheim-Goc-Samuelsson

I think that's a very respectable top 9. Dineen could roll those three line's pretty evenly through a game.
Yeah, sounds good, except when did Olli become defensively sound?
