Higgins-Schroeder-Hansen
Hansen-Lapierre-Wiese

Malhotra? Raymond? Volapatti?

These three players are needed and are NHL regulars that don't normally spend a lot of time in the press box as someone like Ebbett would. It will be interesting to see how the situation is managed, Malhotra is needed for his faceoffs, Raymond is on a tear, and Volpatti is playing his role to a tee which is critical for a 4th line.
Slot in Raymond on the 3rd line with Schroeder and Higgins, then we have Malhotra and Volpatti in the press box.

D.Sedin - H.Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Higgins
Raymond - Schroeder - Kassian
Weise - Lapierre - Hansen

That's my line-up if I'm AV. Solid lines with both speed, skill and grit on every line.

That or we send Schroeder back to Chicago, bump Lappy to the 3rd line and give Manny the 4th Line center duties.
