I am all for giving Armstrong a shot in MO's place. I think that a 3rd line of Talbot, Ouellet and Malone is actually not half bad.
Mismatched speed seems to be the biggest problem with Malkin and Crosby and their respective wings. Only Jordan can keep pace with Malkin in the second line. I think that Colby is a stronger skater than Ouellet.
EC would be better between MO and Malone, that, in theory, is a scoring line that should also be defensively repsonsible. That would leave BGL, Talbot and Ruutu as your 3rd line. I'd still go a step further and put Thorburn or Petro with malone and EC so give them some more grit, and MO would be left out completely.
