Obviously not, but it's a useful indicator and I've never really liked that line, I don't think they mesh very well together.

I wouldn't mind seeing the advanced calculations, I could easily believe them for Gagne and Richie, but I'm not sold on Knuble.

I think Knuble has gotten to the point where he really needs help from his linemates if he's going to play 1st line minutes. I don't think he's suited at all to the high-octane game that most of our top-6 tries to play. However, if we designed a 3rd line "grind line", I think he could thrive in that role.
