If they haven't started clicking by then some changes will happen (they'll happen anyway getting him back in the lineup). Getting Higgins back healthy just gives this team a lot of options.

How about:

Latendresse - Koivu - Kovalev
Samsanov - Higgins - Ryder
Perezhogin - Bonk - Johnson
Begin - Plekanec - Streit
I agree with you! IMO, there's no need to break two combo:

Latendresse and Koivu
Perezhogin, Bonk and Johnson

There's also a couple of things that needs to be changed:

Ryder on the first line
Kovalev with Samsonov
Higgins back in the line-up

That's why this line up would be great and would help us 5 on 5

Latendresse - Koivu - Kovalev: Playmaker with big players on the side...lots of scoring
Samsonov - Higgins - Ryder: Higgins at centre? Worth the try. A little bit of everything
Perezhogin - Bonk - Johnson: You know what you get
Begin - Plekanec - Streit: Plakenec would make that line going

I need to call Carbonneau!!!
