Just saying when your doing your mock lines, Duchene on the wing is a no go.
Duchene was pretty good for Canada at this tournament on the wing as an 18 year old. He deserves a shot at wing with forwards of this quality before being ruled out.

Given that at the top end of the conference teams will not fall out at this point, the only flip/flops will come at the number 8 spot and since as of this morning NY Rangers are out, here's a revised lineup as of today. Top 4 d-men, what are the pairing, MDZ w/Weber and Staal w/Girardi? Do you even see Giriadi being effective on big ice? Or do you still think Weaver is the better option? Plus am hoping San Jose drops out and there will take Coutour moving Benn out (not sold on that guy yet.. especially not on big ice) plus I'd take Boyle and Burns dropping Coburn and Alzner. But please please, no Jumbo Joe or Marleau.

Granted M. Staal has to fully recover from that injury and he's up to playing. Any word on his recovery? I haven't heard nada.
I'm skeptical about Girardi on big ice given his style of play and lack of experience, but you never know. I would be willing to give him a shot at this tournament anyway. Why did you pick Brassard? I never expected to see him. If you want to convert a young centre to wing for the fourth line, why not Hodgson?
