Lats, Lang, Kovalev line is perfect because it would give Lats a chance to snipe any garbage around the net and as I said in a post a couple of days ago, I wouldn't want Lats or Lang to carry the puck up the ice on any line and we don't have to worry about this on this line.
I'm convince more than ever:
Higgins - koivu- Tanguay
Lats - Lang - Kovalev
S Kost - Plex - A Kost.
Ah... its all fine and dandy in the offensive end of the ice.... but what about when kovalev has a turnover as he is sometimes bound to do.... Well with all three forwards being slow, you can end up with 3 on 2s and 4 on 2s against.

I don't want to change it... i was responding to those who do. And pointing out what happens on the other two lines if the brothers and plekanec are all put toghether.
