We'll see how it pans out, but I think we'll get the scoring we need from across the top three lines, and some energy out of the 4th line.
I just don't feel that Schenn complements the top line as well as Voracek does. Voracek is fast, big, and more pass-friendly. Hartnell does what Schenn would do really. I am fine with either, I just thought the Simmonds-Briere-Schenn combo clicked well enough to have Jake on the top line.
