Phoenix

An alternate take on Phoenix, reasons posted below.

Bödker-Vermette-Doan
Sullivan-Hanzal-Vrbata
Korpikoski-Miele-Moss
Torres-Gordon-Chipchura
Bissonnette

Yandle-Morris
OEL-Michalek
Stone-Klesla
Schlemko

Smith
LaBarbera

Miele takes a starting slot in the third line and Gordon return to his fourth line where he is the best and moves Chipchura to the wing, removing Bissonnette altogether. Miele have had a terrific year in the A and is a talent that shouldn't be ignored. He is a bit old(for a rookie) and small but giving him minutes with Moss and Korpikoski, two fast players with a good physical play, should give him the chance to shine.

I also think Stone will take Schlemko's position due to the level of opposition they've played against during the lockout but that sixth slot is really a jam between those two, Rundblad and Summers.

I also think that the Bödker-Vermette-Doan line will be the 1a line due to Bödker's terrific season in the SM-Liiga(left with a shared lead in goals despite playing about ten games less than the other dude in the lead) and because Sullivan is a replacement he probably will get less minutes at the start of the season to see if it works out.
