Brunner playing well with Hank can only help him in making the big club when we finally get rolling again. I'd put Hank with Brunner and Franzen...give him linemates that has good chemistry with him.

We're still at the point where Datsyuk still doesn't have his own playmate...that's where Parise or even Semin would've solved that problem. I don't know if you just plug Nyquist and Filppula with him but I'd like a bigger guy to play on that line and Bertuzzi is past being a 1st line option.

Do you dare do something bold and just have Filppula slide to a 3rd line role just so he can center his own line and then shift Helm to 4th line just because there are too many centers on this team?

Nyquist-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Franzen-Zetterberg-Brunner
Cleary-Filppula-Samuelsson
Abdelkader-Helm-Tootoo
