Tatar-Datsyuk-Brunner
Nyquist-Z-Franzen
Jarnkrok-Helm-Sammy
Abdelkader-Andersson-Tootoo
Emmerton, Eaves

Two "veterans" and a kid on each line. Yeah, I assumed Fil outprices himself. Season after that Sheahan and Ferraro make their entrance when we say goodbye to Sammy and Eaves.
I keep hoping for something similar to that, too. Though, I noticed Bertuzzi magically disappeared

What bugs me is that Tatar and Nyquist could have been getting a lot of those growing pains out of the way right now, in a shortened season, and had been more ready to go next year. Instead, it just gets backed up another year.
