If you could start a team from scratch right now, and choose from every player currently in the league, would the Sedins be your first picks for the 1st line?
Definitely, or at the very least keep Hank (though he and his brother are magic, at least in the regular season); to be honest he`s playing at such levels of toughness that I never thought I would see from him, consistently battling down low and even playing hard despite getting laid out by Brown last night. Once he starts shooting the puck I could see him and his brother both being handfuls for the opponent to handle, as he`s become kind of like Zetterberg in the grit department but he just needs to surprise the goalie sometimes by shooting when he has the opportunity to.
Danny and Hank are for keeps. However, adding someone with heart like a Ryan Smyth-type for cheap to that line could work, as adding elements like guys established with down-low plays around the net could also encourage the Twins (esp. Hank) to in turn be more aggressive around the net.
Edit: maybe if they offer sheet Latendresse (who may not get an offer from Minny) or Nick Foligno (really hard working guy who knows how to get get it done) they can have a winger that can work with the Twins with size, or for Kesler`s line (this is a pipe dream) RFA Tyler Ennis who has speed, intensity and is a play-maker, something the team needs for the 2nd line.
Twins - Foligno (many dirty goals, or Nick can work alongside the Twins in their cycle or in their creative plays)
Ennis - Kes - Booth
(speedy, offensive wingers with play maker Ennis, centered by shooter and defensive center Kes)
