Would you like to see Ullstrom on the first line?

Okposo has played well with Tavares in the past and played great the end of last season. On the third line Okposo might become dead weight.
I'd still consider it one of those things a coach should play with once or twice in practice, though. Okposo, whether by rust or brainfart, is the weak link on line #1 right now. It would be interesting to see if JT could get mileage out of Ullström, and if so, how much.
Again, I'd wait 5 more games to see if Ullström is still out working and outproducing KO. If Kyle's still struggling and DU is still on all cylinders it warrants a look, even if only just to shake Okposo up, as benching him for 3 games did last year.
