As effective as they have been, I think they can be even BETTER with Bulis. This is how I see it on Tuesday, if Bulis plays of course:

Bulis-Koivu-Zednik
Ryder-Ribeiro-Kovalev
Begin-Dowd-Ward
Dackell-Juneau-Perrault/Langdon

As much as I like Bulis, I see him contributing much more in a defensive role in the stretch run. He has not been able to jump on his opportunities while his stay on the first line. This will come and haunt him.

When and if Perreault falters. Perreault will then come out of the lineup and Dagenais will come in Kovalev's position and as experience has proven he will excel for 3 to 4 games. And then someone else will come in a releive as the HABS have done all year.
