Tatar is miles ahead of where Nyquist was at his age; he might even be the better player right now.

The question is... if Brunner, Nyquist, and Tatar are all deserving of spots in the top six/nine...

Do we go with this?

Franzen/Datsyuk/Tatar
Nyquist/Zetterberg/Brunner
Cleary/Filppula/Samuelsson
Abby/Helm/Tootoo
Miller
Mursak
Eaves LTIR
Emmerton LTIR

(yes, I specifically left out "The Todd".)
I really like the idea of trying Filp at center if we end up with a few kids sticking. It would give us the best 1,2,3 in the league IMO and if enough firepower is on their wings we could have three lines that are a threat to score everygame. Of course this would be entirerly contingent on the old dogs (sammy, Bert, Cleary) staying healthy and not regressing and the rookies fitting in.

In a perfect world ...
Nyquist Datsyuk Samulsen
Franzen Zetterberg Brunner
Tatar Filp Bertuzzi
Adbelkader Helm Tootoo
Miller/Eaves/Mursak

*Trade Cleary for a big physical dman. Ie, Regehr, D Murray, Volchenkov.
