Hall-RHN-Eberle
Perron-Gagner-Yakupov
Malone-Gordon-Hemsky

If Lander puts up the numbers in OKC, put him in for Gordon and make a 4th line checking line of Smyth/Joensuu-Gordon-Jones
IIRC Malone has a NTC so he's have to be alright with coming here. And I'm not sure that we can afford the extra cap hit TBH, we're getting pretty damn close to the cap as it is. I'd do it if we could shed Hemsky for futures or a cheap contract.
