Good thing is they didn't make the playoffs last year and Getzy rested a little during the season, but it's still pretty bad to see that much TOI for your forwards after each game. Best case scenario is they are up 5-1 midway through the won't happen.
Ya maybe. Basically you would have:

Mac-Getz-Perry (Tons of min, could produce, i think Mac the has skills)
Selanne line (Either they're hot, or they're not)
Beleskey/Sexton - Bonino - Marchant.

The 3rd line w/ beleskey is basically prevent mode w/ Beleskey providing hitting. The 3rd line w/ Sexton is still preventing w/ zero hitting but Sexton and Bonino maybe creating some chances. Still unlikely to score.

But still, I think a top line with Beleskey is likely to get shut down, and a 3rd line with Mac isnt gauranteed to score anything. I think i would rather load up the top line with the most talented fill-in player and just hope the top heavy lineup is enough.
