Ottawa has always shuffled players around for the most part.
Traditionally we've seen C-RW combos in the past. White-Alfie, Bonk-Hossa were the ones last year with rotating LW's depending on who's playing well. With the emergence of Spezza and the glut of talent on the team, Jacques is able to mix and match the top 3 lines to who's playing well and playing well together.
Lately...Smoke-Spezza-Hossa, Schaefer-White-Alfredsson have been two line combinations we've seen quite a bit of. The last few games we've also seen a Bonk-Havlat combo as well.
It's just a part of reality here...there are no real set lines for an entire season...it depends on who's "on" for the night.
