It'd be smarter to play him with Nugent Hopkins. Our offense is not good enough to be sitting the leading goal scorer. He's a kid, he's not going to see getting moved to the press box as anything other than "I'm doing something wrong, they don't like me" no matter how it's spun.

Eberle RNH Yakupov
Hall Gagner Hemsky
MPS Belanger Harti
Smyth VV Eager

Lets try it for a game or two, can't be any worse. Getting to play with Yakupov might give Eberle + RNH a different look too and shake them out of their own funks.
