I would be okay with a younger line. Idk why you would put Maroon on it instead of DSP. Maroon has shown nothing in the NHL.
but seeing how Ryan and the Twins don't match up chemistry-wise...
And if Teemu will be split up from Koivu since BB noted Koivu will be a 3C... Well, I don't know how that's going to be to tell you the truth. I'm trying to keep Palmieri on the right side instead of converting yet another RW into a LW ( ahem Bobby Ryan ).
As for defense, I'll have to agree with Paul4587.
How exactly does Ryan not have chemistry with the twins? IIRC, they were the best line in the league at one point. If anything, and im sure someone will dig up some stats and prove me wrong, Ryan seems like the odd man out because Getz and Perry always look for each other first imo. At times, I thought Ryan was kinda left out of the play when they did play together. Or maybe it was on purpose because as much as I love Ryan, he would already be scoring 45 goals/yr if he didnt have horrible finishing ability.
However, I Prefer your second lineup with DSP and Palmieri being switched.
