I`d be ok to seperate them (Bruce decision could be different though). Mostly it`s because i`d like to see Winnik-Koivu-Devo line.

And also because a lot of Ducks staff (Bruce, Bob) are stating that Koivu will need to earn 2nd line job and wery well could be put in 3d line, could be a sign that Bruce won`t be afraid of seperating them (since i don`t believe that Teemu on 3d line would be a great idea).

But now i wonder if we weren`t signing 2nd line C because if Teemu returns, he could be put with Koivu on 2nd line? We`ll see!

As I said, I don't think it'd be a regular thing, but I wouldn't write it off as a different look now and then to spark things...switching from the right to left side occasionally wouldn't be a huge issue for Teemu, but if it is slide Perry over. I don't think it's that out of the question.
Yeah, agreed!

And he definatly wont see regular time on top line LW.
Our top line is also our shut-down line, so Teemu isn`t the guy to put there.

If we have that shutdown line W-K-D, then Teemu MAYBE could see some time, but even then i doubt it, because G-P are great two way players who`ll be asked to spend some time defending to.
