Our only chance of being a competitive team is if we get that top line playing like the dominant line we've been hoping for. Keith Aucoin's success shouldn't prevent us from trying to accomplish that.
aucoin is actually an ahl all-star center, that is a big difference than a number 4 center

aucoin works well on the isles because he is playing behind a more defensive minded center in nielsen
