So what ? This is the new NHL my friend. There's no such thing as a defensive third line. Most of the teams rally on three offensive lines now, and with this line up,

Higgins - Koivu - Ryder
Latendresse - Ribeiro - Kovalev
Samsonov - Plekanec - Johnson
Begin - Bonk - Zhogin/Murray/Ferland

we'll have three lines capable of scoring on a regular basis with a very effective checking/defensive 4th line. This line up sounds great !

BTW, how many players can we keep ? 21 or 23 ? With 21, we can keep everyone except Downey.
