Spaling Smithson tootoo (shutdown line)

Bam Bam has been all over the ice, throwing his body around night in and night out. He has created many more opportunities than Spaling has. Plus I think he matches up to Kesler better.
The problem with Bam Bam on Kesler is speed. Kesler will eat him alive. Geoffrion does not have the wheels to keep up with Kesler. You also forget SK isn't bad defensively and he's bought into the system. Spaling and SK would be fine defensively together if matched against the Sedins or Kesler's line.
