Martin didn't put Moen with Gomez because he thought they had this great chemistry that would lead to a hot scoring streak.
It's really funny to read some of what certain posters write about Martin like he's some moron who doesn't know jack about hockey, his players or his team.
At the same time, between the Pleks line getting shut down duties as well as playing against the other teams' top D pair and Eller's success in a defensive role with offensively weak linemates, we needed that second line to be very offense oriented.
I understand that Patches' injury threw a wrench in the plans, but I don't think placing Moen on that line was what the team needed most.
