nobody's saying he'd be ahead of him on the depth chart, just that he could play a role on a scoring line which would allow Bergeron to slot into a more shutdown role on the 3rd line, thus giving us 3 very dangerous lines that would be impossible to match up against. I don't think a guy being on the 2nd line necessarily means he is higher on the depth chart than a guy on the 3rd line. In 2009, Bergeron spent most of the year on the 3rd line while Krejci centered the 2nd line but I don't think at that point anyone would have claimed that Krejci was ahead of him on the depth chart.
Besides the notion of a hierarchy among the forward lines on this team is almost non-existant as Julien spreads minutes around more than any other coach. On other teams the top forwards can play upwards of 25 minutes a night, but on this team they often don't break 20.
