As long as the most nhl ready and capable guys are up against the other teams best players i have no problem.
It's really no different then pretty much giving the first line spot to Greening last year, except the fact that Greening isn't as suited for that role as Silfverberg. Seeing that we now have a guy like Silfverberg to step into that role, I see no reason for not putting him there, and leaving a guy like Greening or Regin on the third line where their play is more suited.
