You would think Tortorella would know better. That line has no "jam".
Just another reason why these top 2 lines makes sense:
However, this doesn't make sense:
Wolski-Richards-Gaborik (too much finesse)
Dubinsky-Stepan-Callahan (no chemistry)
I think the Wolski-Richards-Gaborik line will be able to attack with speed and puck movement which will spread out the D.
Moving Dubinsky to the first adds a little "JAM" (stupid word) sure, but Wolski and Stepan on the 2nd substantially decreases the effectiveness of that line. Which was a physical and defensively responsible game with good offense last year. They were our 1st line last year, getting time against 2nd pairing defense will increase their efficiency IMO.
