Babcock is the one who made "right-hand" shot a big deal after the season. Babcock is the guy who brought over Brunner.

The problem with this, obviously, is that a guy like Nyquist might get bumped down to 4th line or the AHL because we have so many left-handed wingers
Flip/Franzen/Bertuzzi/Cleary and on and on and on.
If I think this scenario, I'd put Filppula back to centre to get really balanced offense.

Bertuzzi - Datsyuk - Brunner
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Samuelsson
Franzen - Filppula - Eaves/Mursak
Akader/Miller - Helm - Tootoo
