I think in his case they tried him on the top line last season (arguably very diff as a rookie and no Frolov on the other side but still) and he seemed way more comfy with a few bigger guys protecting him and with fewer minutes/less pressure. They're still brining him along slowly which is fine. He can thrive (hopefully) on the 2nd line for a while and gain some confidence before he tries the top. Altho if Drury fails we may see that at some point. That 2nd line may cool at somepoint as well and then torts will start to tinker again. We'll see it at some point this season probably. Maybe just to see how he reacts to it now.
