I just think it's a smart move to have Purcell on the 1st line as it could help his trade value if he plays well.
given the way Simmonds played last night, i don't think it's a bad idea, regardless of whether or not Stoll returns, to at least start the game on Monday with Purcell on that line. Murray can then make his usual in-game adjustments if need be, then re-evaluate heading into Wednesday's game... essentially treating Simmonds as day to day until the New Year, by which point i think he should probably be good to go on the top line by the Washington game.

you guys need to start worrying less about the success of a player as it relates to this mythical "trade value," and a little more about the success of a player as it relates to the overall success of the team on a nightly basis.
