Heatley really needs to be moved off that first line because he's got it way too easy. All he has to do is stand in front of the net and let Parise and Koivu do all the work for him. And how the hell is he suppose to use that great shot of his when he's told to stand three feet away from the net? Move him down to the second line and bring up Seto to the first line. Two speedy wingers around Koivu both with a physical edge and a good shot. Continuing to give Seto sheltered minutes with incapable line-mates isn't going to help him produce. And I agree with Tyratoku about Mitchell's play lately. Dude has been good and I think some changes to that bottom six are in order as well. Mitchell has played a lot of center and Brodziak hasn't looked so far, especially offensively. So what if we had Mitchell take over Brodziak's spot as the 3rd line center? Here's my proposed lines:

Parise - Koivu - Seto
Heatley - Granlund - Bouchard
Cullen - Mitchell - Clutter
Brodziak - Konopka - Rupp
