I'm not a fan of having Franzen with Datsyuk. I've always remembered him playing better with Z. Filppula and Z had great chemistry last season, so I don't see why they would break something up that works.

Nyquist looked good with Datsyuk, he just needs a consistent amount of games to develop something. There is no reason why Brunner and Nyquist could both play if the prove themselves. Brunner isn't a rookie who has no pro experience, so he just needs to adapt to the NA game. If Brunner doesn't work, just put Samuelsson and Bertuzzi on RW.

I agree with the 3rd line.

For the 4th line, I wonder if they can include Abdelkader in a deal for Volchenkov. I don't see it happening, but Andersson and Sheahan could easily replace him as 4th line C. And we need one more D.

With no moves:

Nyquist - Datsyuk - Brunner
Filppula - Zetterberg - Franzen
Bertuzzi - Helm - Samuelsson
Cleary - Abdelkader - Tootoo
Miller, Eaves (IR?), Mursak, Emmerton (at least one or two need to go. Waivers? Trade?)

Kronwall - White
Quincey - Smith
Ericsson - Kindl
Lashoff?

Howard
Gustavsson


Some movement:

Nyquist - Datsyuk - Brunner
Filppula - Zetterberg - Franzen
Bertuzzi - Helm - Samuelsson
Cleary - Andersson - Tootoo
Miller, Eaves, Mursak

Kronwall - Smith
Quincey - Vochenkov
Ericsson - White
Kindl

Howard
Gustavsson

Nyquist is ready, if Brunner doesn't work out:


Nyquist - Datsyuk - Bertuzzi
Filppula - Zetterberg - Franzen
Cleary - Helm - Samuelsson
Miller - Andersson - Tootoo
Eaves, Mursak

Kronwall - Smith
Quincey - Vochenkov
Ericsson - White
Kindl

Howard
Gustavsson

Or just switch Brunner and Samulesson.
