After reading all the combinations and permutations of lines I have to say that Peter Holland will probably never have a better chance to earn an NHL job than with this Ducks team next year. The opportunity for guys to earn jobs will be there like never before.
I think the success of the team next year is going to be based on some young guys stepping up (besides the expected improvement from Fowler and Sbisa) and some new found chemistry somewhere.
I am a big fan of DSP and am one of those guilty of suggesting he get a longer look on the top line. I would also be fine with giving Palmieri a good look on the top line. The third player on that line doesn't have to be a scoring machine as much as a tough guy who is not afraid to get dirty (not illegal dirty). I oculd see either of those guys possibly doing that but yes, Palmieri likely being the better scorer of the two.
Ryan needs to be off the top line to spread the scoring. I'm not keen on putting him with Selanne and Koivu. He looked quite good with Bonino and Palmieri last year. Somebody (Holland or Bonino) really needs to step up and take that #2C job away from Saku.
