I thought "Marty the Party" would be just the tonic for college boyz Quailer and Leblanc. Blunden, MacAuley and Holland could be a great checking line, Tarnasky on a line with Duffy and Andrighetto could be similar to the Habs two Gally's and Prust.
Finally having both Naatinen and Bournival (both having played center, Naatinen full-time in Finland) with another goalscorer in Thomas (Bournival gifted goalscorer) Naatinen when drafted had a %63 avg. in faceoffs could be the defensive conscience on their line. He starred performing that role in WJHC on the 1st line for Finland with Joel Armia and Sami Salminen. Bournival and Naatinen when healthy will be PK's also which works. St.Pierre and Leblanc are both used on the PK also when healthy.
I have two players on each line that have been or are centers and spread out the lines for a more balanced lineup. Basically trying to emulate the Habs lineup with a top nine and a shutdown 4th line of Blunden, MacAuley and Holland for speed on the line.
