How did exchanging Hodgson for defensive mastermind Pahlson turn out? We lack natural goal scorers in our top 6 as is, so to just completely ignore dressing skill players on the 3rd line is extremely stupid - but Im not surprised AV advocates that.
Who are you going to put out in shut-down situations then, the 4th line that usually only sees 7 mins on a good night? The western conference has plenty of teams that just sit on leads, or if it's tied, sit back, don't take chances offensively and just wait for the other team to make a mistake. If we have 3 offensive lines, chances are higher that we are going to make that mistake while trying to create offense, especially from the third line which would have been centered by a rookie. If the top two lines aren't producing, the team is already in trouble.
