Yeah, I was just throwing the 2nd line of last season out there. Ideally, if Holland and Palmieri are ready, I'd like to see Palms with the twins and Holland between Bobby and Teemu. That way, both kids get to be the 3rd link on their respective lines with less pressure.

If it was up to me, Koivu would be playing on the 3rd line with Winnik and DSP. It's evident that he can't hold up over 82 games anymore, but in a more defensive role he should have more gas left for his duties on the PK and on the 2nd PP unit. In a role like that, I could still see him put up 30 points (of course, many of them on the PP), not much less than what I would expect from him on a line with Teemu and Cogs.
