As i said before, it's a bad idea to play all three together. I didn't like it last year either, i think a lot of folks here got enthralled with the kid line due to the offensive flashiness but the reality is that they were struggled as much defensively as they did well offensively plus they struggled
against big physical teams.
I don't see anything changing this season unless a physical element is added to the top 6. I don't care how skilled they will be with the addition of Yakupov and a healthy Hemsky, the same problems will still remain. Teams like St. Louis, L.A. and Phoenix will have a field day with this group.

Teams that all have big, strong, elite level defensive 2nd line centers.
