He is best suited as a center in the top six, apparently trying him at LW has failed.

Based on that, if he gets called up, I think it would be best if we see:

Henrique-Zajac-Zubrus
Elias-Loktionov-Clarkson
Zubrus-Josefson-Butler
Carter-Gionta-Bernier

Hell, if you want, switch JJ and Loktionov to see who fits better. To me, it just gives us one more option, and I'm fine with that. I'd rather experiment with these low-risk players than jumping the gun and trading Tallinder or a defender for a forward right away. I'd rather wait to do that until everything else fails.
I think that lineup might be somewhat better with Kovalchuk in it. Not sure though.
