And I just don't like the idea of immediately throwing Parse on the 1st line. It might work, but I'd like to see Poni at least get a chance, he deserves it more than Parse right now. AP is only getting 13 minutes of TOI per game right now.
I like the way Ponikarovsky is fitting into that third line now, I don't think Parse would be a bad addition there but I just look at the #2 and #3 lines' performance now and figure they are worth keeping together.
On the flip side, the top line could use a small push, it's playing well but not all the way up to its capability every night.
