Three lines that can score.

Granlund - Damn it, he did look more comfortable at wing. But only for this year!

Heatley - He's been terrible the last 5 games or so. But he was fantastic with Brodziak last year.

Coyle - Kid is legit.

Clutterbuck - Been a complete non-factor this year. Trade bait.

Setoguchi - See Clutterbuck.

Mitchell - Dude can play. He is a great checking line winger. Can forecheck and has enough talent to creat offense. And he can actually protect the puck.
I actually like these lines for the most part.

Personally, I still wouldn't mind Butch on the top line however. He and Koivu have played well together in the past, and that line would have filthy puck control as well as good speed and shooting.

As is though, Granlund did look pretty good at wing last night, and maybe that line combo would be the spark he needs. He has shown that he definitely has the skill, he just needs some help from his linemates to clear him some space and give him options.
