I mean its good, but it doesnt constitue as complete stacked considering he didnt have to outplay any established players evident by the fact that 1/3 of the offence was rookies.

LA is a team i consider offensive stacked...
Generally offensively stacked teams don't have one of the worst goals for in the league, though.

Of all Philly's forwards, Couturier is probably the only one that could be used in a defensive role effectively, so it was probably a no-brainer to not give players who aren't as good defensively as Couturier the 3rd line duty. It's simply making best use of the assets available.

And yes, Philly's forward group is stacked, especially before losing Jagr and JVR.
