Honestly, I think Hartnell w/ Roo and Jagr was one of the most obvious line combinations possible... either that or Simmonds w/ Roo and Jagr (like the 1st PP unit).
Jagr and Roo already proved that another skill player (like JVR) is kind of wasted w/ them, as both Roo and Jagr need the puck on their stick to do their best work. What they need is a big body to drive the net, create some screens, and work hard for the rebounds... someone who knows how to make a difference away from the puck. Simmonds and Hartnell best fit that bill. So it's no surprise to me that the line has been at its best w/ Hartnell out there instead of JVR.
