Honestly if the NHL lockout is still going on, I think Canada should go with three offensive lines and just the one defensive/grit line. Give RNH one line, Scheifele/Strome another, and put Monahan on the third line to provide a defensive presence but with offensive wingers. The defensive line should be a combination of Jenner, Danault, Hudon. Something like:

Huberdeau Nugent-Hopkins MacKinnon
Scheifele Strome Rattie
Drouin Monahan Griffith
Hudon Jenner Danault

Support that forward group with the loaded defence and watch the goals pour into the other team's net.
