i think its pretty clear that mcphee has adjusted the roster make up with the idea of changing the use of their 3rd line away from a 3rd scoring line. look at the available wingers.
in past seasons the caps often has players like fleischmann and fehr to skate on the 3rd line. this season the caps have ovechkin and semin for the top two lines. after that they have a list of muscle players, knuble, laich, brouwer, ward, and chimera fighting over the two remaining wing spots on the top two lines and the 3rd line wing spots. there is not a catch and shoot player among those 5.
take any two of them and you cant really build a 3rd scoring line just by adding a perreault like center. i dont see a scenario where the current roster can provide a 3rd scoring line. its built for a more traditional physical/checking 3rd line.
