4th line will still be "pesky" - really hope Burmi can break out of his slump/funk, but at least you know that line will be very responsible defensively.

Fehr moving to the 1st line - I'm assuming that Noel and Chevy want to see if he can finally uncork for a few goals, and show the scoring touch he had in his limited minutes with the Caps. His opportunity doesn't get ANY better than this. He does look for his team mates too, so Little and Wheeler should be expecting return passes for a change. Love Kane, but he'd be so much more effective if he'd utilize his linemates.

I was really hoping to see Burmi on the 2nd line too.
I agree with you YWGinYYZ. I would have preferred to see Burmi on the 1st line, but this could be Fehr's "chance" to show what he's got. (Not 1 game mind you, more like the 2nd half).
