I think that leaves Erat, Silly, Hartnell, Kariya, YP and Upshall as your best offensive weapons. To me, Hartnell and Upshall are the keys at this point 5 on 5 against a bigger stronger team.
To throw out some ideas:
I think Upshall on the top line and Hartnell on the 2nd line. Sit Tootoo (who isn't playing badly) and move Walker down to the 4th line. Then we need to find a way to get YP on the bench for some PP time-- I would sit Nichols for that.
I would design a PP unit that puts Hartnell permanently in front of the net while feeding Weber the puck constantly. Look at the Calgary footage for how they set up Phaneuf.
If Zids were somewhat healthy, I might even consider dressing 7 defensemen so he could play power play only. With he and YP as special situations guys, I would then role only 3 lines.
