Mitchell-Voynov
Martinez-Greene


I'm not saying we should have both Vatanen and Lindholm in the lineup come playoff time, but I think something like this is very reasonable:

Fowler-Lydman
Souray-Beauchamin
Sbisa-Lindholm

That's a mobile defense, and everyone in that lineup at worst can be average in their own zone.
So you're going to sacrifice quality depth in an odd, shortened season with two rookies, one being undersized (lends to overpowering him due to lack of experience) and the other having two concussion symptoms in half a season. Oh by the way, we don't know how long Fowler will be out still. If it is a concussion, then look at Lindholm' situation.
