Can we please stop *****ing about the lines? It's 1 change and Prucha may be on his way out, so it's no wonder he isn't playing tonight. Who plays on what line has as much to do with how players work together as their scoring potential.
Whether Voros scores or not really isn't the question. It's how his game helps Dubi and Zherdev. If Voros screens the goalie better than Dawes, or draws more attention, creating more room than Dawes did, then he is doing his job and deserves to play on that line. Is he as skilled with the puck as Dawes? No. But you don't just put your 6 most skilled players on your top 2 lines and call it a day. If that were the case, Renney, or any coach for that matter, would just set the lines once and never change them.
