If Voracek and Filatov don't play on the same line together I'd like to see Voracek moved up with Nash and Brass given Filatov makes it on the 2nd line (or I'd want Voracek on the 2nd line) and Filatov to play with Vermette and Huselieus or on the 4th line with PP time.
So you move Voracek up with Nash and Brass and you have a 2nd line of Huselius, Filatov and Vermette? That line would get killed.



This is the way I see it going for a bit anyway.

I don't really know what line number he will start on, it will be more about who he is playing against and the matchups. He will get 5 on 5 time and 2nd unit pp time for sure. If we knew exactly how well he was going to do vs. other teams better players, then it would be easier to define our lines, but we don't.

We have more skill on our team than ever before, but we are very young and there are a lot of question marks to be worked out.

It is a good thing Hitch is one of the best at in game adjustments because we will need him to react if/when guys are getting overwhelmed.
