But when Higgins gets back, I don't know if we'll see him up front again. Just no room. I think he's in a battle with Boullion for #6. Boullion has some impressive stretches, but losses focus often and can quickly become worse than useless.

--Actually, I miss-counted. It could still work out possibly.

Higgins-Koivu-Kovalev
Samsonov-Plekanec-Ryder
Perezhogin-Bonk-Johnson
Latendresse-Begin-Streit

Murray/Downey

Markov-Komisarek
Souray-Rivet
Boullion-Dandenault

Niinimaa.

Plus injuries here and there. It could work.
i think that latendresse must play on one of the top two lines to be effective . i also think that higgins will be centering the second line when he returns because plekanec has proven that he is not top line material so he will probably drop to the fourth to center streit and begin . this imo will give us four strong lines that we could roll game in game out and give us an offence similar to that of buffalo . if gainey can upgrade the number four slot on defence , then a deep play-off run isn't out of the question .
