Read back to my post before that. The lines I listed had those 3 remaining together(I actually wrote Boyes or Joensuu on the right, but now that JJ is out longer it appears Boyes would be the guy).

My idea was to play them as the 3rd line, drop Aucoin and McDonald down to the 4th with Martin(sub Cizikas for McDonald if you want), and use Okposo on the 2nd line with Bailey as the center when he gets back. Bring up Nino and go with Nino on the 1st and Ullstrom on the 2nd, or vice versa.

If you don't like the sound of Nielsen-Grabner playing on the 3rd line, you can look at it as a 2A and 2B situation. Both lines get equal minutes(maybe even more time for Nielsen's line), except one is used in more offensive situations while the other is used in more defensive situations.
