I'd be curious to see Smyth on Stoll's line his first game back. Not so much to see Smyth with Stoll, but to see if simply having Smyth in the lineup, even if he is not playing with Kopi, has any effect on Kopi. Obviously changing the lineup just to conduct a psychological experiment on Kopitar is not in the teams best interest in winning whatever game that is, but still, I'm very curious. If Kopi played like he did with Smyth on his line with Smyth in the game but not on his line, it would say a lot about Kopi's real problem lately and how much of it is purely mental vs actually needing Smyth to create space for him.
