Cooke-Coyle -Nino/Zucker
Fontaine-Brodziak-Mitchell (get the tough minutes)

Thats a lineup that can roll 4 lines without a problem. And a lineup thats a contender(assuming the kids improve)
That's fine for next year, but in 3-4 years when Brodin/Granlund/Nino/Coyle are on or looking for their 2nd contracts, I'd rather not dump guys in their mid-20's because we have too many guys in their 30's making a lot of money. We are right on the edge of my comfort level right now, adding Vanek to that pushes it over the edge.
