This gives Schroeder two wingers who can score and skate, and Burrows can help pick up some defensive responsibilities for that line.
All three players have proven chemistry with one another. This is as solid of a third line as you can get with what we have.
If Malhotra and Raymond can return to form, and Weise carries over some of his Dutch hockey flash, this could be a pretty potent 4th line that should hand bottom six forwards well enough.
I'm not going to even bother touching defense because that's all but given.
