Kassian-Konopka-?

Off the top of my head, that would be the line-up without Heatley, so not really a position the Wild can afford to lose any depth in.
Actually, the line-up would be closer to:

Parise-Koivu-Setogcuhi
Cullen-Granlund-Coyle
Mitchell-Brodziak-Clutterbuck
Veilleux/Dowell-Konopka-Powe

We have plenty of depth in the bottom-6, but not much yet in top-6. That being said, how about Cal Clutterbuck instead? He's an upcoming RFA and his cap hit shouldn't be as bad. He's still young, his offence is still trending upwards and he still hits as much as ever.

So, Clutterbuck+ for Robidas?
