Granted they are (usually) effective together, but the AHL team does not have the luxuury of a 1A/1B lineup we'll be able to roll out in the NHL. They're still together on the powerplay, this shouldn't be an issue.
The Lander's and Pitlick's need to learn to create some offense on their own. They won't have an RNH, Hall, or Eberle to play with ever again. Their efficiency as skilled players is highly reduced when you play them with offensive black holes.
