Let's just say that Therrien believes that he can get AK going consistently and they sign him to a reasonable contract.

Our first line is obvious

DD-Max-Cole (75 goals)

If Therrien is smart, our third line is obvious based on how well they played together last year.

Moen-Eller-AK (50 goals)

Then, we have lots of options for our 2nd and 4th lines.

Bourque-Plek-Gionta (60 goals)
Armstrong-Prust-White (20 goals)

Nokeleinen, Blunden and Geoffrion become our spares.

I like all four lines. It's a veteran lineup with some grit. The bottom 3 lines have shutdown potential.

All this is assuming that Leblanc plays a full year in Hamilton and Gally plays in Sarnia. Gally could however force his way into Bourque's spot on the 2nd line.
