Yep, just got done reading that article myself, and I think it's a great idea.
It gives Vlad the opportunity to play with the Blues most veteran players who just happen to be some of the most offensively gifted and defensively responsible. It should also take a lot of the pressure off Vlad in the defensive zone and allow him to focus on scoring and less on D. Now Hitch won't let him forget about his defensive responsibilities, but it will allow him to focus on his offensive game more.
BTW, Mac-Steen-Tarasenko, best "3rd" line in the NHL?
