Another set up could be:

Ladd - Little - Wheeler
Kane - Olli - Wellwood
Burmi - Scheifele - Antro
Poni - Slater - Mach / Thor

Just spit-balling here. No real preference. I do like the look of that though.
Those 13 are actually the 13 forwards I would like to see (Miettinen as #14), maybe not the exact same lineup as you have, but close enough. The problem is having faith in Noel to actually role the lines and have even the slighest amount of faith in young guys...of which I have exactly none...I can see Noel going with a Mittens/Thor - Slater - Scheifele fourth line...playing them 4-6 minutes a night in sheltered minutes...then when Scheifele gets sent down in that situation claiming he wasn't ready
