With that said, it's going to be awesome seeing Neil in the lineup.
Exactly. While Filatov hasn't particularly stood out outside of that one nice wrap around against Dallas, he hasn't been a detriment to the team either, and he's obviously up with the big team for a very distinct reason. I think he should get at least another two or three games on the top lines to prove himself. Until his situation is sorted out, I see no reason why Konopka, Butler, and Daug can't be rotated in and out of the lineup. They all seem to do just fine coming in off the bench, and the team doesn't loose too much stability (although I suppose breaking up the current third line would have a bit more of an impact).
