Sundin and Jagr?

I just can't agree with this and the more i think about the idea of this type of lineup the more and more les sense it makes to me.
Not saying that I'm a fan of the OP's lineup, but personally, I don't think it should matter one bit what the players are making. Last year, we had Drury centering the third line, and it was working for us. Did it matter then that he's making a ton of money? If moving a guy off of his natural position is what is best for the team, then you do it, regardless of his salary. Sort of just playing Devil's advocate here, but still.

You think Anisimov is ready to play on a top line in the NHL, on the wing no less? That seems like a monumental stretch to me.
