Pick Your Power Play and Penalty Kill lineup

I see the #1 powerplay unit as this:

Sundin-Allison-Lindros
Kaberle-McCabe

My theory is that if the 3 big centres will be playing on 3 separate lines then there will be a shortage of quality ice time to make them all happy. After all, these guys are all used to playing big minutes on their teams in the past. So, if you put them out as a power play unit as much as possible then it gives them all a chance to play more in offensive situations and gather some more minutes.
And what a killer Combo!!!! 3 Huge guys that can score with the best of em!

The penalty kill is a little more tricky.....

Antropov-Ponikarovsky
Berg-Klee

I'm only saying this about Antro and Poni because I remember them playing together on the PK last year and they seemed to be pretty effective. They're both big and have long reaches that can sweep away the puck. Plus Ponikarovsky may not always put up the points but he busts his *** and plays aggressive enough for this duty. I think Klee and Berg will be together all year as a steady, defensive, reliable duo so they're a natural for this assignment.

Let me know what you think??

I am curious to see what the big 3 could do if they play together, but I am even more inclined to do this:

Unit 1: Allison - Sundin - O'Neill
Unit 2: Tucker - Lindros - Antropov

Def Unit 1: McCabe - Kaberle (this pair takes the majority of the time)
Def Unit 2: Colaiacovo - Khavanov

I don't have strong opinions about the penalty kill.

This would be interesting, but it will never happen:

PP#1: Sundin-Allison-Lindros
McCabe-Kaberle

PP#2 O'Neill-Steen/Wellwood-Czerkawski
Colaiacovo-Khavanov

Just throw every weapon on offense out there that we have.

I think it would be difficult to put the big 3 centers on a single unit ..

If they are all playing center as planned then what happens if they score ??

Which line comes back out next ??

Power Play - PK

On the first PP

Tucker/Sundin/Lindros
McCabe/kaberle

On the second PP

Kilger/Allison/Oneil
Khavanov/Klee

Because shifts are only 45 sec. long if the pp goes longer than the 45 sec average shift length then I would have to roll over two lines.
Also, Quinn is a guy who believes in rolling all four lines and you could still get some players involved in the game by playing the following on the PK.

Poni/Antropov
McCabe/Kaberle

I would also like to see Sundin/Lindros on the PK's 2nd unit.

This could be alot like the Mogilny/Sundin PK that was as equally offensive as defensive.

The Defence isn't so much of an issue as they will need to be cycled to spell off the top two and give them a chance to breathe.

I see a whole lot of PP and PK playing here so it may be that Quinn throws names in a hat and if no one is bleeding or puking they get back on the ice.

Man, I can't wait.

oops. Forgot about Czerkawski. If he plays as he should then he will obviosuly see PP time. Put him on the second unit and Antro and Tucker take turns.

Quinn almost never breaks a line up for PP's ...he'll use whatever top line is freshest to start and then roll them as usual.

Nolan is a big loss defensively on a team like this, which is average at best in that department.

His offensive numbers disappointed, but he was our best defensive forward and had good speed too.
