Berube is very very stupid. I have zero faith in him whatsoever.
He is in a sticky situation with arguably our two most versatile players out... and Vinny not 100%, but I would have gone (If Vinny is capable of taking a faceoff!):

Schenn-Giroux-Voracek
Hartnell-Lecavalier-Simmonds
VandeVelde-Couturier-Downie
Rinaldo-Hall-Rosehill

The 2nd blows on D... but the 3rd is going to be a disaster tonight as I imagine Couts gets the hardest matchups still... but with 2 defensive liabilities on his wings, and I would rather just put the 2nd I proposed out for 75% Ozone starts and that 3rd for 75% Dzone starts.

VDV looked nice enough on the wing in preseason. Or switch Hall and VDV... I know Hall is long removed from his Nashville days... but he was a top 9 winger then who could chip in goals, he aint that guy anymore, but that line would be nasty to play against.
