Okay, I've been absent from this board for far too long, and this thread is right in my wheelhouse, so here is my take on the line combos.....
For me, you have to play Datsyuk and Zetterberg together. I know that they've appeared to struggle when played together so far this year, but the entire team has struggled.
Also, I just hate Cleary playing on the top line. I like the guy, but he just doesn't seem to fit.
So.....here is how I'd line everyone up.
Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Holmstrom (Don't rag on Homer too bad.....he really is most useful fetching pucks and has really seemed, dare I say it, quicker than usual.)
Hudler, Filppula, Franzen (Yeah, I actually like this line.....and I think Hudler really plays well with Flip.)
Bertuzzi, Abdelkader, Cleary
Miller, Helm, Eaves (Rotate in Brunnstrom with Miller.)
Rotate Commodore and Kindl, and I think he'll push Kindl to play at a higher level.
So, that's it for now.
Go ahead and rake me over the coals......I know you will..
