What I'd like to see is a split between Nuge and Eberle. I think that they both need possession of the puck in the offensive zone to be effective whether it be through passes or Eberle's ridiculous wrister.
On the other hand you have Yakupov and Hall who are both very fast and like breaking in the zone with the puck on their stick. You then have Hartikainen, Hemsky and Gagner to fill in the rest of the top 6. At some point this season I would like to see this at least tried when (if) we get healthy.
This gives every player the chance to play their natural position, that top line has proven chemistry, and the second line has a playmaker, a sniper and someone to drive the net. Hemsky would still get his minutes playing on the third line and on the powerplay.
