Hmmmm... people are throwing around some good ideas but honestly I don't think it's a good idea to mess around with




those lines were very effective last year (ok, you can argue that the Stepan line wasn't THAT great, but I think they should get a little more time together).

I'm still thinking you try the forechecking grinder (Avery) and the finesse option (Christensen) and go with what works the best. I think either has a chance to put their game WAY over the top playing with a couple of guys like Gabby and Brad. Has anyone seen the way Avery can cycle and make good plays?... has anyone seen EC when he gets some open ice? Sure it's experimentation... but we don't have a bonafide top line LW without breaking up the PACK line... and if I'm Torts I don't want to do that, they could absolutely tear up secondary defensive pairs. You're gonna have to be creative, hopefully that's what they use the preseason for.
