A good coach would rotate the younger guys into those top two lines as the game progresses while we're up on the scoreboard.

Perhaps. Although I got hammered at the beginining of the season though for the same idea. Since our 3rd line apparently "sucks" at shutting people down anyway.

Anyway, there will be injuries and all sorts of other things. I think he'll get some chances.
