Do we really even need Doan?

We can run three balanced scoring lines that look like:

Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik
Nash-Stepan-Callahan
Kreider-Boyle-Pyatt
Rupp-Halpren-Asham

If Rupp can return to form, that's a formidable fourth line. Kreider gives our 3rd line a scoring threat. In addition, that 3rd line is ****ing huge.

We would also most likely add some sort of 2nd/3rd line tweener at the deadline ala Antropov.

Playoff roster:

Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik
Nash-Stepan-Callahan
Kreider-Boyle-tweener
Pyatt-Halpren-Rupp/Asham

If we sign Doan, that forces either a newly signed Pyatt, a newly signed Asham, or someone who Tortorella loves in Rupp to the bench. Do we really see that happening?
