I couldn't agree more ! I too see a problem playing Juneau and Kovalev on the same line. I'd much prefer a line looking like this :

Sundstrom - Begin - Kovalev

The reason behind this is simple, Begin's our number one spark plug this year and if someone is able to jump start Kovalev, it's him ! Also, Sundstrom and Begin have been able to generate some (limited) offense this year. They can put nice presure on the opposition defense and create turn arounds. Now if only some great offensive talent was there to turn these turn arounds into goals, wouldn't that be great ?
