I wouldn't mind us trying out Seto or Zucker on that top line. Yes, yes Heatley, 3rd on the team in points, I get it.

Heatley doesn't have great chemistry with either Parise or Koivu, and moves about as fast as a piling. With someone like Parise it would be cool to see a capable winger that can keep up with him. I don't mind Koivu bringing up the rear, but we can't have someone coming in behind Koivu....
Hopefully Zucker - who put up 20+ Gs in 38 and 40 games each season at DU - can be a consistent 20+ G a year guy who occasionally flirts with 30s, 40s or better from time to time. Maybe, while I know totally different than him, he can put up Lattendresse numbers in due time and make up for that gaping loss.

He sure seems like a 30+ guy.

Also, once the rookies have "paid their dues" and get some PP time, that's going to be sweet.

Offensively, sure...but I wonder how they would hold up in the defensive zone?

Same thought here.

Granlund - Larsson - Zucker

Or swap Zucker for Coyle and Zucker on the top line?

Granlunds actually pretty defensively responsible. My opinion is that wingers are sorta irrelevant in most systems.

Shelter them...give them a lot of starts outside the defensive zone. Best defense is a good offense...whatever theory you want to use.

Also I think all the worry about being a two way player and the line of thinking that says player X can't play with player Y because they are not defensively responsible is bull. Seto/sucker are decent defensively simply because of their speed.

As much as well all want to see it happen we are NOT going to see an all rookie line. Ever this year. Come on guys..find me an all rookie line in the last 10 years in the NHL. You won't find one.

I do however like the idea of putting Zucker with Granlund. Keep Seto with those two. Larsson probably gets scratched for Bouchard on that 3rd line and sent back down to Houston.
