Each line would have an extremely solid defensive player on their line; Bozak, Kulemin, and Komarov plus all 3 would have the potential to burn the opponents offensively. You can sit Mac(incase of injury) or trade him.
Sure that could work. The one argument I have is if you put Lupul with Kadri-Frattin it could give us a 1 B offense line that would normally be facing third liners. Mcclement-Grabo-Kuli would be the shutdown line facing the number one line, and Kessels line would be facing the second line (or there shutdown line) which would make the Kadri line the odd man and giving them a chance to really provide us with the extra offense we need.

Also if your putting Grabo, Kuli, Lupol as the shutdown line thats 10 million + tied up on forwards that are just shutting down top lines all game.
