Explanation: I know that most on the board LOVE having Pav and Hank back together, and aren't going to like these lines, but please, just hear me out. It's hard to put this into words, but, I just don't think that these two need eachother to be successful anymore. Pav and Hank both need the same two things in order to be successful - 1) a good net-front presence; and 2) a sniper that gets into good position; not eachother. I think it's sort of a waste of Hank's talents to make him Pav's sniper - as opposed to letting him run his own show - when there are other suitable snipers on the squad. So, the above lines are what I'd run. I also love the idea of having Flip and Huds together on the third line, and of Modano no longer centering a line (I don't think he has to two-way abilities to do so in our system).
