How about:

Foligno/Dubinsky/Huselius
Prospal/Johansen/Atkinson
RJ/Brass/AA
Letestu/DMac/Dorsett

The addition of Juice changes things up, a bit, and allows some strength to be moved lower in the lineup. I think that first line might actually produce reasonable scoring. Those who like RJ's game better, could switch him with Vinny, but I do like the way this grouping protects the youngsters and allows Anisimov to take draws for Brass (a very weak part of his game), while still giving Brassard some finishers on his wings. DD's play, last year, might seem to warrant placement higher in the lineup, but I see that fourth line playing more minutes than in the past, particularly at the expense of ice time for that second group. That way, the kids can be brought along at the right pace and Prospal can have his minutes limited to help him stay strong throughout the season.
