Smith and Nyquist should have made the team out of camp, but due to the players already on the roster they preferred to give them more IT in GR. I fully expect them to be on the roster this year with Nyquist at least on the third line full-time and Smith rotating in if not full-time, paired with Kronwall.
I agree.
Also, Flip even when playing as a winger he is decent defensively (so Z doesn't have to think too much about D)

Parise/Semin/UFA - Datsyuk - Nyquist/Bert
Flip - Z - Franzen
Cleary - Helm - Eaves/Miller/Nyquist/Bert

If we can get Parise/Semin top 3 lines are good. (not the best but not weak either)

Suter/UFA - Kronwall
Q - E
White - Smith

Also depends on how good the UFA is.
