Powe on the first line would be a disaster. Every team in the league could contain Gags and Richy if they were playing with Powe.

They really need to go with 2 power lines and then an ok 3rd line . A full season of Powe playing the PK and the addition of Betts who is great on the PK and Lappy to take up some PK time should be an ideal situation to run 2 big scoring lines since they wont have to have Gags, Richy and Carter out there for half of all 10 of our penalties every game.

If it were up to me i think the ideal situation would be something like...
Gagne-Richards-Briere
Hartnell-Carter-Giroux
JVR-Powe-Pyorala
Carcillo-Betts-Lappy

Instead of spreading out the ES time between 3 lines to keep them fresh for the PK why not go with Betts and Powe as your #1 PK line? Running 3 attempted scoring lines will not help their problems with the ES play we saw last year.
