OP if you haven't seen chemistry between Hall, Ebs, and RNH last season and during times this season, I don't know what you've been watching.

Smyth hasn't been that bad, and he's still a better NHL centerman than VV at this stage of the game.

Our first line is disappointing, we have no secondary scoring, Yakupov is playing the wrong side, and RNH is being forced to face tougher competition than he really should be at this point in his career - so how about this arrangement?

Line 1: Hall-Gagner-Hemsky (probably our three best forwards this year)

Line 2: Hart-RNH-Eberle (Hartikainen can create some space for the other two and allow them to simplify things, easier matchups for the Nuge)

Line 3: PRV/Jones-Horc/Belanger/Lander-Yakupov (Yak gets to play on the right side and creates a legitimate scoring threat on the third line, obviously works best when Horc is healthy, but Belanger or Lander might work as well)

Line 4: The leftovers
