We should be cautious about applying AVs line setup in Vancouver to this roster. He almost never had 3 offensively capable centermen on the Vancouver roster. The closest he came recently was with Hodgson, but he wasnt very effective (due to no fault of his own or AVs). Malhotra was normally the 3C in Vancouver recently. Before that it was Kyle Wellwood. Earlier in his tenure, he did have Sedin, Kesler, Sundin, and Demitra all at the same time. That was so "long" ago that I don't think that whatever he did then is associated with him.

I'm not sure what our lineup will look like. I'd be surprised if we didn't see one or more of our centers tried at wing at some point during the year. Here's what I'd like, in an ideal world.

Hagelin-Richards-Nash
Kreider-Stepan-Callahan
Pouliot-Brassard-Zuccarello
Boyle-Moore-Dorsett
