Kimmo-Schenn (Kimmo 21mins, Schenn 22)
Grossmann-Gus (Grossmann 19, Gus 19)
Streit-Mez (Streit 21mins, Mez 18)

I could put up with that if Kimmo was playing like last year and Gus keeps up his good play. 'On paper' those players can play those minutes... but Kimmo is the big concern for me in that regard based off this year so far, this would put a lot on him.

But Mez every night (unless he can get back a semblance of his former self) and a current Kimmo is scary. Plus the PK defence loses a big part of it.
Those times look scary. Timonen, Schenn, streit and Mez are all out way to much there. That would be total chaos
