If that really is their second line, Muller should just put the Staal's together and send them out.

A QMJHL smurf, a lazy old Russian and a winger turned to center? Yes please!

In all seriousness, if I were Kirk I would match it up as so:

Boychuk-Staal-Semin against that second line.

Skinner-Staal-Dalpe/Bowman against the first line.

Match 3rd lines of Tlusty-Jokinen-Dalpe/Bowman.

Match 4th lines.

It's going to be interesting to see what Dineen will do. That 2nd line is a liability waiting to happen, and unless he wants them to play 4 minutes of ES, he has to send them out against someone. I would guess that 3rd line.

But that puts one of the Staal lines against their 3rd/4th lines, and since J. Staal will be playing tag with Weiss the entire night, that means that E. Staal and Semin will get to play against 3rd/4th liners.

Wow, we are a really hard team to match up against now at forward. I love it.
