You just can't break up that top pairing this season...when Staal is back @ 100% and Sauer rejoins the team in a few weeks, I put those two together on the second pairing (which would be deadly in its own right!) and then keep Del Z-Stralman as an AWESOME third pairing that can log more minutes than any third pairing in the game...I'd be ready to go to war with that D!
You can absolutely break it up if they both start to struggle.

Though I don't think that they will.
