I don't see any mobility problems in that bottom six.
Good lineup; the only difference between my lineup and yours is that I have Hall, you have Benn. Hall has game-changing speed coming down the wing which I truly believe we'll need on the larger ice surface. We'll need to see if he can stay healthy, though....

I have Seguin in my forward group too; he has good chemistry with Bergeron, is playoff tested, has excellent speed, and has been well-coached so far in his young career so he's not a defensive liability. Jordan Staal and Patrick Sharp would be next on my shortlist, and to me the big "what if" is how Getzlaf plays this year (or whenever the lockout ends).

Tavares - Crosby - Eberle
Hall - Stamkos - Giroux
Richards - Toews - Perry
E. Staal - Bergeron - Nash
