IF we had a healthy Leggy I might agree, but if we are trying to win right now, when they roll their #1 line, it seems prudent to roll Smitty's, then come back with either Cal or Goc. You can't seriously suggest rolling JP/Horny and whomever as C is a good idea against most #1s, can you? Even when they play their best D, both JP and Horny are below-avg skaters; rolling them against ANY #1 line isn't playing to win, that's gambling, at best.
