The other option would be to break up Jokinen-Cullen-Ruutu and put Ruutu on the first line, but that would be pointless as that's the only line that has shown anything resembling chemistry the entire season.
Not that I disagree with the reasoning for this, but Samson is a RHS also. With the need for a fill in on the top line, and Samson likely needing a top 6 role if he was ever to stick at the NHL level, they brought up the wrong guy... strictly IMO.
