What's the big deal? You try something. If it doesn't work, you try something else. You're not jeapordizing anything when you shuffle lines. You're seeking solutions to very clear problems.

Or you could continue to score 2 goals a game and hope for the best. That's worked out real well so far.
Have to agree here. I could care less if Dubi has 70 points and the team finishes 7th en route to a first round exit where they score all of 6 goals in 5 games. Given the team's play, it's worth taking a shot on it, even if its only a game or two or a few shifts.

As Chosen said, its a team sport. If moving Dubi to center results in him contributing to five less goals, but helps Gaborik / whoever produce 10 more goals, it's worth it. It may not be ideal, but it's best for the team if it works. It may fail miserably, but everything else has recently, so maybe its worth a shot (at the very least, its worthy of a discssion)
