Not that it will matter
I suppose horrible was strong, but I am not a fan of the lines overall still. The #1 problem I have is consistency. Players are bouncing all over the place. I don't like Penner on the right side, even though Brown had one good game on the left. Stoll has shown nothing and Loktionov has been more active, while he hasn't produced either, he has been more creative and has a bigger drive to make things happen. I don't like Johnson on the third pairing. If we wanted more offense, and if the gun was to my head like it is to Murray's, I would be bumping the offensive defensemen up and just go with a Johnson-Doughty pairing for the long-term and give Voynov the green light behind them. Still, in the end, the most irritating thing is players are moving around way too much. I would be pissed if I was switched wings and linemates every single game.
