probably the 06 style 2 everydown lines and then a third counter punch line to attack good matchups. Hodgson/Ennis (Drury/Briere) are rolled regularly with Grigs (Roy) used to exploit easy matchups. Grigs juices his ice time numbers like Roy did with second PP time. Then you use Hecht to center a forth line shut down role or a grinder line depending on opponent.

Vanek/Hodgson/Pominville
Stafford/Ennis/Foligno
Leino/Grigorenko/Ott
Kaleta/Hecht(McCormick)/Ellis(Scott)
