I think it is more that you need to put him in a role he has the abilities to succeed in. Clearly centering a 3rd line with Fehr and Ward on it is working for the most part. But that isn't a line you want to match up against another team's top line as many other 3rd lines often are.

I guess if you were going to put together a line you would be fine matching up against other team's top lines from the Caps' on paper top 9, assuming Perreault is in the top 9 and I think he should be, it would be Backstrom centering some combination of Laich, Brouwer, and Ward.
