Unless you're planning on bumping Ebs/Hemsky down.
How on Earth would he score from his "natural position" playing with two guys that are as rare as endangered species in controlling the puck in the offensive zone. Or in Belangers case even being in the offensive zone?

Maybe Yak needs to be the Russian Rocket and blow past entire D's all by himself like its a track meet on ice. Or have a very long range ballistic missile slapshot.

To sustain his confidence, production, potential, he needs to be playing with players that can even remotely complement that potential. Do we really want to send our only present goal scorer into a crashing stall?

For what reason?
