Another option,

Parise - Koivu - Setoguchi
Granlund - Brodziak - Heatley
Bouchard - Cullen - Zucker/Coyle
Mitchell - Konopka - Rupp

You brought in Seto as a top line winger and Parise as a top line winger, try them with your top line center for FIVE GAMES. Just do it for SEVERAL GAMES. Not for two shifts or dink around. Stick with a line for a bit.

Put Brodziak with Heatley, they looked decent last year together. They had a grinder on their line, so in theory putting a higher end player like Granlund should be an upgrade.

Butch is a skill guy, not a fourth liner. Put him with some offensive guys. Cullen has shown a little life. Put a young kid on that line too, whichever you want, send the other down.

And the fourth liners should take many draws in the D zone and get the puck out.

Spreads the kids out and gives two players that deserve it (Seto and Granlund) an honest shot.
