So whoever is between them isn't exactly holding them back. Maybe they just need a defensive anchor in the middle so they can feel more comfortable rushing the net?
This line has been together nearly as regularly as the Hanzal line. They've been OK. I think Belanger brings them down a bit offensively, but he's responsible in other areas. He's a tough player to figure out... Some games I think he's really noticeable, making plays offensively and elsewhere, but other games he looks dreadful. His only consistency is face-offs, and that's big for our group.
