Id like to see our fourth line be sestito, palmaeri, zharkov

Agreed. And switch out palmeiri for janssen for tougher opponents. Then when josefson comes back to be third line center, carter can move to 4th and sestito can get sent back down or stay a scratch

With Josefson only shortly behind Zajac in his recovery, at least there won't be a long period of Zajac switching between centering Parise and Kovalchuk (or both). We can hope so, at least.

Parise - Zajac - Zubrus

Tedenby - Elias - Sykora

Kovalchuk - Henrique - Palmieri

Boulton - Carter - Clarkson

That's is what I want to see.

kovy on the third line? i dunno about that one

It isn't the 3rd line per say, it is the line that gets the 3rd toughest minutes. We roll the first 3 lines consistently anyway.

I think it'll look more like this:

Parise-Zajac-Henrique

Kovy-Elias-Sykora

Tedenby-Zubrus-Clarkson

Whoever-Carter-Palmieri

Then when Josefson gets back, it'll be:

Parise-Zajac-Henrique

Kovy-Elias-Sykora

Zubrus-Josefson-Clarkson

Tedenby-Carter-Palmieri

You might exchange Sykora, Zubrus and Tedenby at some point so they all get a chance on that second line depending on their play. henrique could also be used as the 2nd line RW and Zubrus could be placed there instead since that line had some chemistry when it played a couple years ago.

Also, depending on how we look when everyone is back and healthy, a trade at the deadline could happen with maybe Teddy or Zubrus being traded along with a prospect or pick for a right handed RW that's a true top 6 player.

I like the idea of keeping Kovy/Henrique together and Parise/Zajac. That's what I want to see for the first two lines.
