Now, Martin Hanzal still is out with an ankle injury and the Stars are still juggling nine defensemen, so that throws some reality onto the line shuffling game right off the bat. Mix in the fact that new coach Ken Hitchcock has already said he wants to concentrate on pairs that include Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, Radek Faksa and Martin Hanzal, and Jason Spezza and Mattias Janmark, and you have even more to stop you in your tracks. But these lines sure look like
