That's generally good.

I'll nitpick and say no to Jack Johnson and Shattenkirk together. If you are going to keep them on the team you'd have to partner one with a stay at home guy like Carlson, McDonagh or Erik Johnson.

I would also take Okposo over Pominville, move Callahan up to the 3rd line, switch Ryan and Pacioretty, maybe switch Backes and Pavelski to create a good physical checking line. Okposo-Backes/Pavelski-Brown would then be the bangers line.
