Have you seen the way they pass the puck to each other? Do you think anyone else on the team would be ready for those passes?
You seemed to have missed the part that wasn't bolded in my quote:
Couldn't it be argued that the three guys who are playing PPG hockey right now are good enough to succeed apart from another? Pominville is a solid hockey player who's skills may help provide Grigorenko much needed leadership.
Vanek/Hodgson could likely play on the first line without missing Pominville TOO much due to their chemistry with one another. Sure, Pommer would be missed a bit on that first line. He's too good not to miss.
As I noted, there would certainly be a drop off. And again, I'm not necessarily for breaking that line up. I just think it's something that should at the very least be pondered.
