At least with Getzlaf and Perry together the team gets tangible results.
Because this team doesn't have a true 2nd line center, Koivu is the best of what we have. I don't believe that Holland suddenly becomes the 2nd line center this team needs, atleast not during the beginning of the season. Bonino has a chance to step up over Koivu (not a sure thing) but I see the Finns playing together a better option than Bonino-Selšnne (I doubt it would be any more consistently good). Chemistry shouldn't be overlooked.

It's good that they are making everyone work for their spots and not just give them away. Competition brings the best out of people.
