been saying this for a while.
Hagelin - Richards - Gaborik
Nash - Stepan - Callahan
it does a few things.
First and foremost, it spreads the offence.
2nd it keeps Gaborik in his natural and more comfortable position of RW.
3rd it puts a guy (Nash) that has the skillset and size needed to impose his will on a line with a skilled center and a tenacious winger.
Stepan playing with those two guys would look alot better right now as he wouldn't have to work with a guy playing his off position for the first time in years (Gabby on the LW)
Torts is trying to foce the Nash - Richards chemistry and I wouldn't have an issue with that during a full 82 game season. However, during this abbreviated season, that should not be attempted. Not so early.
