On Spezza's line, Michalek just tries to find open ice and shoot it, his best asset: speed, isn't in full use making him not as effective. That's why he was able to get more assists than goals when he was on San Jose, he thrived at that 2 way threat.

I completely understand if management want to keep em cause Milo had 35 goals but with more depth on our top 2 lines I think we can alternate without seeing a huge decline from those 35 even if he is on our 2nd line.
I agree with that and unfortunately it makes it look like lazy coaching. More thought needs to be given to line chemistry. It is very important. Spezza and alfie were together for a min or so. They scored. Michalek and turris were together and scored.
Nevermind starting and leaving silfverberg on the first line.
If the lines are the same next game lazy is going to start morphing into dumb and i don't like saying that about king paulrus.
