Gaborik - Richards - Nash

Hagelin - Stepan - Callahan

Kreider - Weiss - Pyatt

Asham/Rupp - Boyle - Ferrerio

That's too much for any team to deal with matchup-wise. Plus... isn't Weiss what you would call a TORTS KIND OF GUY?
The problem I see with that:

So far this season:

Richards - 16:28 ES TOI/Gm, 72.6% OffZoneSt
Stepan - 13:25 ES TOI/Gm, 64.4% OffZoneSt
Boyle - 11:07 ES TOI/Gm, 28.6% OffZoneSt
Halpern - 5:40 ES TOI/Gm, 22.2% OffZoneSt

Moving Boyle down to Halpern's spot and taking Halpern out of the lineup would mean a lot more defensive zone faceoffs for Richards and Stepan and their offensive production would suffer.
