In that scenario, if Jeffrey outplays Tangradi, he can move up to line 2, and Tangradi to the 4th line. In either scenario, you could double-shift any one of the big 3 centres with Jeffrey or Tangradi or whomever, and at least have a 4th line with some skill that could create some offensive opportunities. That's part of the way to accomplishing the goal of giving Staal some increased offensive responsibility.

If we end up signing/trading for a guy with skill (i.e. Ray Whitney, Setoguchi, Stewart, etc), then there's a trickle down effect that bumps Asham/Adams out of the line-up and gives us a 4th line with even more skill potential.
These are the only two I don't like. Jeffrey should go some where else if he isn't going to be on the third line at least. We need two good 4th line guys for energy. Other than that I like it.
