How many points would St. Louis get if he played with Rupp and Christensen ?

I am still not convinced that Zuccarello is good enough for NHL but we will never find out if Torts again will ruin his confidence. I think it will not be long time before Zuccarello will be sent down to AHL again since its impossible to make magic in 5-7 minutes of playtime in the 4 th line.
Agreed. I'm not sure that MZA will make it in the NHL, but this lineup is pretty much rigged to guarantee failure for him.

While there are some moving parts that Torts still needs to figure out, I don't get why we're not at least seeing the following constants:

____-Richards-Gaborik
____-Anisimov-Callahan
____-Stepan-____
Rupp-Boyle-Prust

...with Dubi, WW, Feds and MZA as the moving parts that need to be slotted in. The fact of the matter is that, even without any trades, by next year 3 of those 4 may be replaced, but in the meantime it doesn't do the team any favors to have other guys out of position.
