The puzzle doesn't fit together properly with all the forwards healthy. I can't see either of those top 2 lines getting better by replacing anyone with spezza. Don't know what the answer is when he is ready, but i'm afraid of what clouston comes up with.

It won't happen, but i wouldn't mind seeing a Shannon-Spezza-Butler line for a while.
