Problem with our lines is that we need more than two consistently good players in our top nine. When seven of your top nine forwards all go cold at once...that can't happen. That's why guys like Coyle are brought up, they have urgency.

Heatley can play like crap for three weeks...he'll still be in the top six. Coyle can't play like crap for two games in a row otherwise he might go to the minors.

Granlund needs to feel that threat too...he got scratched and on the fourth line, now let him play 2-3 games with decent linemates and see if his fire comes out.

If not, there's guys like Zucker and Larsson waiting in the wings...

Wild really need to move Kassian and/or Setoguchi to bring up another kid and bump an older player off into the press box.
