Don't know what that means for lines/callups.
My reasoning for Coyle on the top line is due to his style of play and mature frame. His positioning, cycle game, and ability to screen/tip shots lead me to believe he would be more effective in the NHL at this point in time.

With that said, I think Zucker has easily been the best offensive forward in Houston. His speed, shot, and ability to be effective with everyone has been impressive. I could go either way - I just happen to really think Coyle's game is going to really blossom in the NHL.
