Ryder-Koivu-Higgins
Samsonov-Kovalev-Perezhogin
Kostitsyn*-Plekanec-Johnson
Latendresse-Bonk-Bégin
Downey

Murray waivers.

*Lapierre, Kostitsyn or Ferland. Personal choice would be Kostitsyn since he's a natural LW and would compliment Plekanec's playmaking abilities. On the other hand, Lapierre and Ferland bring grit and better checking.

IMO, Kostitsyn is a better choice because the Habs need more offensive production and this year's team is far from soft. Ryder and Higgins have been impressive with their physical implication, while Koivu's never been affraid of the traffic.

On the second line, Perezhogin has proven he can play an agressive game and isin,t affraid of digging pucks in the corners, Kovy's 222 pounds nuff said.

On the third, Johnson's not exactly a physical player, but he certainly can contribute in that area. Kostitsyn's not small neither. Johnson and Plekanec are solid in their own zone, Kostitsyn has progessed in terms of positionning.

The fourth line would enjoy the Bonk-Bégin stability, while providing good support (offensively and defensively) to Latendresse.

I like Downey, Murray I don't.. would not miss the Habs if any team grabbed him off the waivers.
