After some internal debate over what to do with my top 6, I picked Brad Richards and went with this.

Malone - Federko - Recchi
Gillies - Richards - Cournoyer

As much as Federko isn't a jaw-dropping 1st line C, I wasn't comfortable with Recchi being the primary playmaker on that line. I figure this gives Joe a distributor, while Recchi can focus on being a more versatile guy, and the primary defensive conscience.

Then, on line 2, I have somewhat of the same set-up with Richards being Cournoyer's set-up man, and Gillies being the corner guy/defensive specialist (though Richards is not too bad in his own end).

I was apprehensive to move Malone to the LW as he wasn't there for long, but I think that with a good set-up man like Federko, he can still play a very similar game and be just as effective.
