Do you understand the concept of a checking line? Its not to be offensive, its to play against the other team's top line and shut them down. Mitchell, Dubi and Feds would be one of the worst checking lines I have ever seen. I don't understand why so many people fail to see the value in a dominant checking line, which is exactly what Dubi, Boyle and Pruster are. How often have you seen the other team's top line go off against NYR since they were put in that role? I can remember once, possibly twice, and it wasn't the entire line, only super individual skill by Malkin and Stamkos.
