This year I don't think it was so much over-changing the lines as the fact that there was no magic combination, they were at least one forward short of a complete top six/nine all season and that never ceased to be the case. He kept that Smyth/Stoll/Williams line together for a long time, he's pretty well stuck with the Clifford and Simmonds combo once it clicked, so I don't think he is too quick on the trigger in every situation or anything.
He's not quick enough on the trigger right now. It's pretty clear the lines he has at the moment can't put the puck in the net.
