I don't understand what the problem is with the top 6. Last year, in order of points scored, this is the breakdown for the top 6:

1. Gaborik
2. Richards
3. Callahan
4. Stepan
5. Hagelin
6. Anisimov

Hagelin also played 64 games, less then everyone on that list and still was 5th. Now, if we add Nash to the mix based on his points over in CBJ, it would go like this:

1. Gaborik
2. Richards
3. Nash
4. Callahan
5. Stepan
6. Hagelin

So there's your top 6. Not hard. The lines are going to jump around because Torts likes playing hot potato, that's the type of coach he is. Shouldn't the fans know that by now?

Kreider is going to play top-6 minutes for a good portion of time too and will probably be interchangeable with Hagelin or be slotted right in there if there's an injury. It's just a no-brainer.

I think Kreider-Boyle-Pyatt could make some noise as a line, but won't be effective in scoring much. The addition of Nash sort of leaves Kreider out of the mix for now. If all goes as planned, we will hopefully win a cup, and will not re-sign Gaborik, and Kreider will step up to be the player we think he will be to replace him in the coming years.
