Not yet. Some of these guys just need to get going. Higgins has barely played, for instance. Plekanec is snakebitten, juggling him won't change that.

Instead of line-juggling the wingers to get guys going, I propose we scrap the dumb idea of 3 "scoring" lines and try to find 1 line that can actually defend against the forecheck. If there's a hole in our game, it's that one, and you can drive a truck through it. Tighten up the defensive play, play as a UNIT on the ice of 5 guys, and all of the sudden the strugglers will magically find themselves on the scoresheet.
