Not bad, but I'd rather leave Vanek at LW and put Ott on his RW. Spreading out to three balanced lines is not an ideal scenario or directly comparable to last season since Roy and Leino are gone, but I wouldn't mind at all trying to see what Grigorenko can do with talent on his wing. I in no way believe he's ready to be a legit NHL player but I want to give him all the ice time possible for now to get his hard knocks out of the way.

Vanek-Hodgson-Ott (Vanek has proven to be productive with/without Pominville)
Foligno-Ennis-Stafford (I think they can still produce together but Ennis needs to win faceoffs)
Hecht-Grigorenko-Pominville (Hecht can forecheck better than Gerbe and is better defensively too)
Scott/Gerbe-Porter-Kaleta (still a solid 4th line)

Rearrange the PP units and get Ehrhoff running the 1st unit. It's ridiculous that he hasn't been there already.

I think Rolston will be much better at teaching and less better at grumpy fits and yelling.
