While Knuble might be a good player, he really doesn't hold anyone accountable for the liberties they take with Gagne and Forsberg. Eager would change that. Also, Eager is a great skater and a great checker. He would open up ice and lane ways for Forsberg and Gagne to do their magic and Eager might pop in a goal or 20 playing on that line.
I'd drop Knuble to a line with Richards and Handzus. I'd then try Nedved on the wing with Carter and Umberger. As for the fourth line, Ellison/Dimitrakos/Potulny? might be the last pairing.
I'd like to see Eager on that line. i think it's a good idea. Create room, check some people. I wouldn't mind seeing Downie on that line next year, should he make the team.
