Look at it this way then,

We had Jokinen on the 1st line last year, who also struggled to win faceoffs. In all likelihood Cammy will be slightly worse on the dot.

Do you think Cammy (if he gets 70) scoring 10 more points than Jokinen will be difference in us making the playoffs next year?

Because to me it seems like thats what that plan boils down to.

Also, if we put Cammy on the 1st line C, Stajan has literally no spot on this team so he becomes a wasted asset. Put Cammy on the wing if you want him on the 1st line and use Tangs with Cervenka and Hudler.
