Moen - Prust - Armstrong/White

I could theoretically see him on the 3rd line with the kids as well, but I get the feeling MT wants a vet with them. All things being equal - barring any injuries - Eller might have to content himself with 4th line minutes.

He's starting to play well... Let's see what happens.
I actually really like that lineup. I think Cole would be a perfect mentor for the kids. He's also big and strong so he can help support them physically too.
