I'd rather see Pav centering that top line, maybe switch Bert and Franzen. Pav is too good at makig space for a shooter like Brunner, and I've always liked Bert and Pav together.
I agree, I feel like the Brunner- Zetterberg "chemistry" thing is being played up far too much. It couldn't of been the fact that they were far and away better than the competition they were playing haha?
I think Z-Fil worked really well with Hudler last year ultimately I would like to see these lines.
I've really liked what I have seen out of Tootoo this far. He is all hustle and I think the 3rd line would keep a lot of teams on their heels as well as keeping the opposing defenseman worried about being run through the boards on the forecheck

I think without injuries, we're a 6-9 team. With injuries. I'd say we're a 7-12 team. If theoretically we were to miss the playoffs, I'd hope Holland would make the rare exception of trading up.(Which he is not known to do...) Go hard in the off season for whoever is left on the market and try again next year.(Though we should go hard in the off season regardless of making the playoffs or not.)
Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall for points, imo.(barring injuries to any of the three, obviously)
