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.
Those are good lookin' lines, for many reasons.

I like Seto up there. Don't know why it hasn't been tried yet, given everything else that has been tried, but people who know more than us make these decisions, right
