I wouldn't mind seeing what Fehr can do on that top line.



IMO Fehr has earned himself a trial run on the top line. He's done some good things on that 4th line, and I thought played one of his best games vs. Buffalo on Thursday. He's improved steadily, and has been a good soldier who hasn't sulked despite limited opportunity.
I would tend to agree with this. Burmi often seems to stick handle his way back into traffic. At first I didn't like seeing that Fehr was being put on the top line, but it does make some sence. he has been playing better and a few nice feeds from Little and Wheels just might light that fire. He will also pass to the open man which initially will throw his line mates off...but they will adapt.
