The 1st line stays as it is obviously FOR NOW. But when/if bigger changes need to be made I'd try something like this:

Parise-Cullen-Setoguchi
Granlund-Koivu-Clutterbuck
Bouchard-Brodziak-Heatley

Spread the 1st liners to make three solid lines. Every line has one player who's has a more defensive role (Cullen, Clutterbuck, Brodziak). Every line has a right-handed shot.

Parise has been the best player so far, I firmly believe he could still do well with those linemates and even help Setoguchi find his game as well. Granlund and Koivu would definitely have chemistry and Clutterbuck would make it a good mix. Bouchard in the 3rd would have 2 big bodies to make space for him and he'd feed Heatley.

So three equally solid lines. All can play defense, all can score goals. If one line has an off night, you still have two solid lines that'll definitely pot goals.
