Unfortunately that is exactly what was said about the first line and their chemistry. Lets not forget the Kosty, Pleks, Kovy line has played what 4 games together, and while the success is very welcome we can't not forget its just that, a short span.
IMO, Montreal has two second lines. Neither can carry the team through a season. However you will see stretches where the Koivu line carries the team like it did the first 8 games or so, then stretches were both lines struggle to score or both succeed, and times the Pleks line carries the team. The simple fact Montreal lacks a consistent game breaker is the reason.
