    I like that lineup. Although I think I'd try to trade Greening instead of Condra. But TM probably wouldn't take that because he knows Greening sucks. I think it would take Wiercioch, Prince, and a pick to make that Stewart trade since TM knows how much the Sens want him. I like Stewart's intangibles and the fact that he has put the puck in the net in the past. But that was mostly in protected minutes. Can he do that again on a top line? Then again, is Spezza's line really the "top line" anymore? I guess that's the bigger question. Plus it's maybe 50-50 that Spezza's traded in the off-season.

    For now, I think the lines should be....

    Mac - Turris - Hemsky
    Michalek - Spezza - Ryan
    Hoffman - Zibby - Stone
    Condra - Smith - Neil
    (Greening, Kassian)

    Methot - Karlsson
    Wiercioch - Gryba
    Phillips - Ceci
    (Cowen)

    I'd switch Ryan and Hemsky but I like that mix. Hopefully the last 20 games go well. If Spezza, Michalek and Hemsky can consistently put up points and not be minus players we have a chance to make playoffs. At this point I almost feel like we are experimenting for next years lineup.

    Michalek-Spezza-Hemsky
    Hoffman-Turris-Ryan
    MacArthur-Zibanejad-Stone
    Greening-Smith-Neil/Condra

    YES totally agree, although I can't see PM scratching Condra or Neil. JW what would your D lines look like?

    Those lines seem like they would be close to the actual ones. Condra would be scratched though.

    Also, can Hesmky play LW because Stone showed a lot of chemistry with Spezza when he has last called up. A line of Hemsky-Spezza-Stone could be pretty dangerous.

    Behind you, look out
    Keep the Spezza, Michalek and Hemsky line together. In their second game they got 3 points each and we all plus 2 .

    Not to mention that Michalek and Hemsky have an edge calling out plays in Czech to each other.
