I had a crazy idea yesterday:
Yes, it would be pretty much a carbon copy of our top line last year (Heatley-Brodziak-Johnson), but it worked, didn't it? And Mitchell is faster than Johnson. Might be just enough to create some offense and also good defensively. Gives Heatley room to do what he does best, which is to surf around the net.
Why Seto on first line? Well, Koivu and Parise are the kickers on that line, and shouldn't be separated. I'd rather have Setoguchi than Heatley there, because he's a righty shot, he has good release and will bury given the opportunity (unlike Miettinen).
2nd was tricky. I wanted to have Coyle there. I really did. But I also want to see Granlund at the wing.
I'd really like to see Setoguchi traded at this point, Bouchard replaces him on 1st line and roll with Granlund-Cullen-Coyle on the 2nd line.
