Cogliano-Koivu-Selšnne
Ryan-Bonino-Palmieri
Winnik-???-Beleskey/Staubitz/DSP

I didn't put anyone with the Twins yet 'cos some people seem to be against putting DSP there and they might try some rookie (Maroon, Etem etc. dunno). I'm not against using Bobby with Bonino and Palmieri. Boner and Kyle have chemistry and Boner is good enough 3rd line center while Ryan adds a lot of skill to that line. I agree that he plays better when he's not with Getzlaf and Perry, atleast now.
In the Ducks A-Z article about Koivu in the OC register Stephens said that both Selanne and Koivu acknowledged that his role may change for the upcoming year. So they're probably not as inseparable as many think.

At the end of the day if we can't acquire a 2C through trade then we need Holland (or Bonino) to step into that hole ideally this year. IMO It will be a hell of a lot easier to let them do it when we've got vets like Ryan and Selanne to put them with.
