STRONG DOWN THE MIDDLE
JOE THORNTON, Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski may all center their own line, provided there are enough wingers to go around. Brent Burns is one of them now that he’s converted from the blueline. Patrick Marleau, Martin Havlat, Tommy Wingels and Tyler Kennedy can score from the wing. The Dan Boyle-Matt Irwin blueline combo provides offense from the back end.
