Despite the change in team philosophy to a speed oriented, north/south game, I still think some grit is needed somewhere in the lineup. I think you'll see a lot of different combinations on the 4th line with Betts as the center. The line will have a lot better of a chance to chip in a goal here or there with Sjostrom and Korpikoski.
Betts has been given the opportunity to play with some of our more skilled forwards in the past and made nothing of it. He's a black hole on offense.
