Here's what I really want to see:

Granlund - Koivu - Heatley
Parise - Brodziak - Bouchard
Setoguchi - Cullen - Clutterbuck
Rupp - Konopka - Mitchell

We haven't tried Koivu and Granlund together even though they've been linemates before. Koivu and Heatley provide the size to keep Granlund out of too much trouble.

Parise, like Koivu, is an engine that can get an entire line going. I think that's what Brodziak and Bouchard need to get the scoring going again, and Bouchard will make enough pretty plays to give Parise good chances. Brodziak puts some grit alongside Butch.

Setoguchi, Cullen, and Clutterbuck all play a fast, physical game and can all chip in for two-way play, checking, energy, and also scoring.

Fourth line, no changes necessary right now.
