Why? The only time I want those two playing together is on the second PP line, and even then, that means Ovechkin is playing too much.

If Ovechkin is playing with Morrison, that means Backstrom is having problems (or Ovechkin is, or Morrison can't play with Semin, etc).

It's fun to put all your eggs in one basket, but it's a recipe for disaster. Semin is just as talented (stick wise) as Ovechkin, if not more so. If you put all your power in one line, sure, they'll score, but what about for the other 35-40 minutes they aren't on the ice?
