Kostitsyn-Koivu-Latendresse:
Kostitsyn : sniper
Koivu : Play maker , vision
Latendresse: Physical play
Koivu showing his leadership playing with 2 rookies.


Higgins-Plekanec-Kovalev
Higgins : In your face style.
Plekanec : Great vision
Kovalev : play maker, scorer
Nice chemistry between higgins and Plekanec, all of 3 are fast skaters.

Perezhogin-Ribeiro-Ryder
Perezhogin: Speed.
Ribeiro : Creativity
Ryder : Sniper
Nice chemistry with perezhogin-ribeiro and ribeiro-ryder.

Murray-Grabovsky-Bégin
Murray : Intensity
Grabovsky : Talented player with Intensity
Bégin : Intensity
Physical play by Murray and Bégin could help a small guy like Grabovsky.

Discuss!
I do not like a few things....
Ryder is young and still improving, he has 55g in first two NHL season and I see no reason to put him on a third line. Higgins as shown good things with both Ryder and Koivu on his line and I do not think it would be a good think to break this. If we are to keep Ribeiro, I would rather go with the following...

Higgins, Koivu, Ryder
Latendresse or UFA, Ribeiro, Kovalev
Perezhogin, Plekanek, Kostsitsyn
Begin, Lapierre, Murray

Or perhaps we could trade Abiesher and our 1st for Havlat and get the following.

Higgins, Koivu, Ryder
Kostsitsyn, Riberio, Kovalev
Perezhogin, Plekanek, Havlat
Begin, Lapierre, Murray
