We have had 10 skaters our first 9 games, now we have 11. Best Rotation?

4 Wingers (ie, 2 lines)
By far the best way to do it, in my experience. It gives the centers a little more jump in their step, which is necessary since they play a 200-foot game. The wingers and D have simple on-off rotations, no confusion.
I don't care for rotating players to different positions, unless they really feel like doing it voluntarily. In a system like the one above, centers are getting 20 (hard skating) minutes each and everyone else gets 30 -- nobody is getting screwed out of a reasonable amount of time. I don't see the benefit in swapping people around just as they're getting into a rhythm.
