I don't see why people can't believe using an all rookie line wouldn't work. It's not as if the rookies are morons or anything like that. Schenn and Couturier have high hockey IQs and Read just fits like a glove. Couturier and Read have carried the line with Hartnell so far, so I don't see how the play drops when Schenn gets added to the line.
The whole idea of having a veteran skate on the line is beyond me. You play your best players - and if a rookie is a better player than a veteran, you play him. And to be perfectly honest, if the Flyers decide that they want a "veteran" on the line, why not move Hartnell elsewhere and bump Nodl up from the fourth to left wing on that line? Nodl is just as good defensively and can atleast stand up on his skates.....
