Also, I'm not sure if Leopold is whom we want.
Just balancing the lines, they'll get rolled out rather equally. We finished the season with Vanek-Hodgson-Tropp, Foligno-Ennis-Stafford, and Leino-Roy-Pominville...and those lines really clicked. Morrow is basically a better Tropp, so trying to use minimal disruption of lines. Though some advocate for stacking the top line, in which case I suppose Morrow and Pominville would be flipped. But the lines as I wrote them also balance the physical presence across all four lines.
