But there are two options going into next year. Either we keep that line intact and make them face tougher opponents, see how they handle it, or break it up moving Cole next to Plek and make them along with Gionta, handle the tough minutes.
I'd like to see the line get tons of offensive zone starts, like the Sedins. That way, even if opposing coaches match up against them with top players, the MP/DD/EC line (do they have a nickname?) will still be starting at an advantage.

I wouldn't bet on that. He is going into his 26 year old season, I think he's pretty much in his prime.
