I would like to see the following:

Cammy-Pleks-White (Max if he's ready)
AK-Eller-Gionta (very curious what this line could do)
Pouliot-DD-Darche (Darche will make some room for the boys + go to net)
Moen-Gomez-Halpern (total shut down line maybe score a few)

Hammer-Wizz
Gill-PK
Spacek-Sopel

I dont know...looking at that I just want to keep changing everything around....better just leave it.

If everyone is actually healthy at the same time (minus Markov/Gorges)?

Cammalleri-Plekanec-Darche
Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta
Moen-Eller-Kostitsyn
Pouliot-Desharnais-White
Halpern/Pyatt

Hamrlik-Wiz
Gill-Subban
Spacek-Sopel
Mara/Weber/Picard

Price
Auld

...but we all know that not everyone will be healthy all at once.

I do like the idea of hiding our young, big talent on the lesser lines and then rolling.
Agreed. If it's Boston in the first round I wouldn't mind seeing White along Pleks and Cammy. Not necessarily a first line player but he certainly has no problem going into dirty areas and isn't afraid of anyone. Considering that Pleks and Cammy can expect to see Chara most shifts, having White out there creating chaos will likely result in a whole lot more time and space for these two.

Dude, Gomer has NOTHING to show for on the wing; average shot, below average (bordering on bad) board battles and he usually can't get past d-men near the boards (he crosses the blue line at centre).

No. Just no.

If Darche and MaxPac come back who sits at forward? A lot of people seem to scratch Moen, Halpern or Darche, but if JM is giving up Pyatt no way he takes another defensive stud out of the line up unless Pouliot is lighting it up.

Cammy - Plek - Moen
MaxPac - Gomez - Gionta
White/Darche - Eller - AK
White/Darche - DD - Halpern

Hammer - Wiz
Gill - PK
Spacek - Sopel
Mara
Weber
Picard

I would also try and rotate Mara in against physical teams.

No Pouliot?

And if we're healthy Moen doesn't play on the top 6 that's for sure!!

But man that line would be a friggin disaster. I guess having one guy who can shoot on the line is a plus but too bad it's the one guy whose the biggest liability on the ice lol. If I could write a book on stunting Eller's development this would be on the first page

Aside from that line though, magnifique!
Haha.. well I just don't want Gomez no where near our top 6. I so fed up with him. MaxPac and DD has some chemistry. Gionta will work hard with any center.

So no choice to put Gomez on the third line but I actually like Eller on the center better than Gomez centering Eller. So yeah. That's the idea. I know I will never see that line though.

MaxPac - Gomez - Gionta is a great second line and I don't want to split up AK and Eller on the third so the other top line position is up for grabs. Pouliot is too inconsistent and takes bad penalties so I don't want him on the Plek's shutdown line. Halpern just doesn't work so I would either put in Darche and tell him to park in front of the net, or put Moen on for his grit, great defensive play and playoff beastness. I then left Pouliot out of the bottom six because AK and Eller need some grit on their line (white), we need Halpern because he is our best faceoff man and only righthanded centre. So it comes down to either Darche or Pouliot to play with DD and Halpern on the fourth line and I honestly think Darche will give you the better effort.
