2 of them are PPG players so far and the other has had TONS of chances and is a 0.66 PPG player.... "That top line just isn't working" is *crazy talk*, and nothing less
I agree with the person you quoted..
At ES the top line has not worked in AHL nor here.. They work fine in duos (Ebs + Hall) (Nuge and Ebs) but something happens when they are together as a trio..

Nuge has been great on back checks and IMO should stop the 2nd line from leaking goals. Gagner just can cover up for Yak and Hemsky..

Hall and Ebs work great together and have some chemistry with Gagner from last year. Hemsky and Nuge both seem like they want to be more than just passers so having both on the same line should not hurt us too much..

Having said that... if we keep the kids together and they combine for a 10pts vs CGY I will be changing my theories :p
