I don't like those combos enough. Smithson is the weak link on the Legwand line. We can't play to a draw anymore with that line, we need to take more chances. That's the line that is hiding two guys who can put up points, and being satisfied if they are even or only minus one since they play the "top line" of the other team. Which only happens part of the time anyway due to the changes. But now the two line looks no stronger, the Boyd Tootoo line looks no stronger, the Legwand line is the same.
This new lineup isn't going to score enough goals. The old lineup with SAD getting chances was not so bad. We could have won the last game and been 3-1 out of the break. Moving Wilson up to the Legwand line and asking them to score more would have been a useful change.
Hopefully Trotz is going to be right, and I'm wrong, but my own view doesn't see enough goal scoring out of those lines. That Arnott line is going to have to put up big numbers for this to work. And it does look promising.
