I like Halpern because of his faceoff ability, but I assumed he would be a spare forward on occasion. He was a healthy scratch for the Caps in the playoffs. It wouldn't hurt for Rupp to be a healthy scratch every now and then either. But there really isn't enough depth at the moment to have the luxury of going those players nights off.
add doan and after gabby returns you have hagelin and 1 of kreider/doan/cally on the 3rd line. boyle isn't the ideal #3 center but you still have 2/3 of that line made of guys that played in the top 6 last year. thats pretty solid in my book
