I really don't think it has to be this difficult (albeit the lines will change 400x this year).

Hagelin-Richards-Nash
Kreider-Stepan-Gaborik
Pyatt-Boyle-Callahan
Rupp-Halpren-Asham(Haley game 1)

Kreider has chemistry with Stepan, Stepan has chemistry with Gaborik, both Kreider and Gaborik are extremely fast, and Kreider's body can open up space for Gabby. Gives Kreider a playmaker to work with. Callahan can get his body preserved with his pedestrian scoring ES ability, puts him in a shutdown role (which is where he excels) and give him max PP+PK time. Win win win.

Boyle+Cally more than make up for Pyatt's defensive "shortcomings" on the third line. That is a big mean annoying third line to line up against.
