people get way too caught up in the labels and line #s...ideally we'll have 2 2nd lines how you order them doesn't really matter.
to me listing callahan with dubinsky and anisimov instead of kreider and stepan has NOTHING to do with thinking cally should be on the '3rd line' and EVERYTHING to do with the fact that he has chemistry with those 2 guys and letting THEM play with cally gives you the best chance of them having bounce back years without hurting cally's performance
obviously if dubi and artie end up in columbus then its a non-issue but i think the odds of dubi having a bounce back year increase greatly if he gets to play with cally what # you label that line doesn't really matter...but the pack line or a hagelin-dubinsky-callahan line would probably be used against the other teams top line and get as much or more ice time than stepan's line and for arguments sake could be called the 2nd line if you like
