With or without Christensen in the lineup I don't see room for MZA for an extended period unless we suffer another injury. We're already pretty packed on the wing as it is...Frolov, Gaborik, Drury, Dubinsky, Avery, Prust, Fedotenko, Boogaard, (Prospal, Callahan).
More injuries or a Frolov trade without a winger coming back is the only way MZA is on the roster for the 2nd half, IMO
Our weak faceoff #s put Drury (20 for 37) at center automatically I think.
I think Avery should be given a shot at center. He's 6 out of 10 on faceoffs + he's second on the team in assists. Although I truly do believe Drury through necessity remains at center.
Prospal - Stepan - Gaborik
Dubi - AA - Cally
Avery - Boyle - MZA
Fedetenko - Drury - Prust
