agree, that 3rd line doesn't do much right now. You could try putting Pyatt on the 1st. Move Gaborik back to RW, put Kreider on the 2nd line.
Pyatt-Richards-Nash gives you 2 big guys driving the net and a great playmaker
Kreider-Stepan-Gaborik has the potential to be great offensively, but leaves a little ? defensively. Worth trying though IMO, because Stepan showed great chemistry with both of his wingers already.
Hagelin-Boyle-Callahan gives you great defensive play, while also having the ability to create offense with speed and sheer will. Callahan has some skill as well. Hagelin and Callahan don't need great passes the same way Kreider does, they can flourish through dump & chase.
4th line stays the same as I think Halpern and Asham did a good job and I don't want to break that up.
