I have this feeling, after both Koivu and Kilger/Begin are back, they are both staying on top two lines. Ribeiro moves to the wing Hossa slides down to third Dwyer becomes scrached often and Higgins is on his way to Hamilton. There will be also plenty of others becoming healthy scratches not neccesarily because of playing bad but because we have good number of forwards.

The reason being the faceoffs. In their first game they sucked in that category. But last night Perreault owned Leafs. He lost only twice in nineteen tries! Ribeiro on the other hand was drawing even worse - having almost mirror numbers with Yanic... winning four out same number of draws.
