When you replace guys like those with Krejci, Peverley, Corvo and Pouliot you are losing that battle big time..
I love Peverley, but he should never, ever lead your team in PP time per game.
Why I'd like to consistently see Seguin in DK's spot w/ players he's already shown some natural chemistry with. Like Lucic, or Bergeron. At least Seguin is shifty enough to draw pkers down low w/ him, much like Savard did, and give Chara a chance in an open shooting lane for once. Pkers would at least have to deal w/ a triple threat (i.e. pass, shot and a one-timer at that, explosive "make you look stupid" speed).
He's had time on the PP but not on the 1st line time. Further, not near enough for him to feel confident enough to just try stuff. Instead he's been on eggshells knowing CJ has him under a microscope.
