Rolling three even lines and a defensive/energy fourth:

Tlusty - E.Staal - Semin
Jokinen - J.Staal - LaRose
Skinner - Welsh? - Ruutu
Nodl - Brent - Dwyer

(If Welsh isn't ready for NHL minutes, swap Skinner or Ruutu to center and bring in Bowman or another Checker)

Playing the J.Staal line against opponents #1 line would provide both defensive capability and offensive talent and allow more offensive match ups for E.Staal and Skinner lines.

Then stack up for powerplay:

Semin - J.Staal - E.Staal
Skinner - Jokinen - Tlusty/Ruutu

And penalty kill:

J.Staal - Semin
E.Staal - LaRose
Jokinen - Dwyer/Brent
