What would be the harm in moving Lupul away from Kessel?

Because Lupul is our worst defensive forward, we'd need a strong defensive center to counter balance that line a little bit. Unfortunately, that won't be happening anytime soon.
For now, keep Lupul - Kessel together. They were one of the hottest duos last year so that's something that we don't want to change. The second line struggling had nothing to do with our top line; it had everything to do with Kulemin. Yes, it is Kulemin's fault that Grabovski was forced to pick up the slack for the second line.
If the top line struggles next year then break them up, until then just leave it. There really isn't much you can change anyways - Lupul would drop down to the second line and JVR would likely switch to top line.
Also "hot topic"? Really?
Lupul - Bozak - Kessel
Van Riemsdyk - Grabovski - Kadri
MacArthur - Connolly - Kulemin
McClement - Steckel - Brown
MacArthur/Connolly/Lombardi eventually get moved to make room for Frattin/whoever else.
