Del Zotto - Eminger/Bickel

Torts has indicated his preference for Gaborik to have a left-handed center (and that first line had a stretch of great chemistry last year). Conversely, I expect Torts would like to give Stepan a chance playing with an elite winger on his strong side.
this with the only adjustment is having Kreider play with Richards and Gabby and Hagelin on the 3rd line.

Reason being is that Kreider needs a playmaker and Boyle aint it. Plus having the calming influence of Richards would be better than Stepan.

Kreider - Richards - Gaborik
Nash - Stepan - Callahan
Hagelin - Boyle - Pyatt
Rupp - Halpern - Asham

the rest that you posted is good.
