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.
Cole isn't a LW, you put him there you might aswell trade the guy. Eller on Galchenyuks wing is a better idea but then you miss out on Prust protecting the kids.
