That is a solid top line.
If I'm not mistaken, Filppula's played with Zetterberg before to mediocre results.

As a centremen with Zetterberg/Franzen/Bertuzzi as his wingers, Filppula's never exceeded 40 points.

As a winger with Zetterberg as his centermen, Filppula had a break out year.

Looking at the Wings board, they all emphasize how much better Filppula plays on the wing compared to years past when he was a centremen. The Flames are stacked on wing, they don't need another one, especially at the cost of their best defensemen.
