He's too good to be shut down completely. He's going to find ways to physically get past whoever is sent out there to slow him down, and he's going to find ways to get into an open lane to receive a pass from Francis. Francis, as well, is going to draw a lot of attention to himself, which will open up room for Conacher as well, and he's good enough as a playmaker to find a way to get the puck to Conacher, even through all the checking.
I just think that Inglewood has a good group of guys to limit the damage this line does, just as Australia seems to have about as ideal a match as you can get against Gretzky.
