But I'm not sure the team has the players to do it. Which top 6 guys are ready for some more responsibility? Which need the softest minutes? (kind of a redundant question)

My predicted line-up:

Hall - RNH - Eberle (thown more to the wolves this year)
Hartikainen - Gagner - Yakupov (sheltered)
Smyth - Horcoff - Hemsky (tough minutes)
Petrell - Belanger - Jones (responsible enough for some tough minutes)

Softest forward lineup in the league?
I'm not sure Hartikainen is coming up. Eberle, Schultz and Hall have been scratched from the OKC game tonight. No word on Hartikainen, if he plays tonight, you'd have to assume he's staying there (unless TC doesn't start on Wed as per the rumor)
