Pretty much doing what Burke always said he was going to do but didn't. Carlyle was probably looking at Nonis and saying, "where the hell am I going to play these guys?"
I think Burke's approach didn't pass muster in Toronto.

Team needs offense from the top 3 lines, and I think they can get it when you consider Kadri and Frattin could make up 2/3 of the third line.
