The habs didn't do much to address their issues for a top 6 winger, but they will have gionta back in the lineup, so hopefully that opens some more options.

I think cole, pacioretty, and desharnais compliment each other perfectly, so ideally, you would like the 2nd liners to step up their production. I dont think the 2.5 men would be nearly as effective broken up as they are together.

The real wildcard in all of this is Rene Bourque. If he's motivated, he has the ability to be a pretty good compliment on the 2nd line, in which case, the 2.5 men don't have to be concerned with being broken up. Of course, this is all assuming that the 2.5 men will be just as effective as last season, which is a very debatable topic in itself.
