It's not the end of the world if you have two good PMDs playing together. Especially if they get the job done. Same thing if you have two good defensive dmen in the 3rd pairing.

I'm aware of that. However, Salminen & Lamberg love to hit everything that moves. And they hit hard. And they can use that abilty better as wingers. Hännikäinen is looking like a reliable two-way forward and can play more defensively between those two cannonballs. Faceoffs could be a problem but Salminen can handle those.

Leino isn't a 4th line player at this level. But he is a good backup if someone in our top9 doesn't produce.
