But Setoguchi for me is a 2nd/3rd liner. He really hasn't shown much of the goal-scoring ability we all wished he had, but he is displaying some good energy, strong physical play, and good board play. He has good speed and a good player to have on an energetic line like what we have in the Zucker-Cullen-Setoguchi line.
I don't know if I agree that my standards are very high. But in my mind the second line should be a first line light. They should be able to hold on to the puck and pass it around the offensive zone instead of just dump and chase and attack goal in a straight non-creative fashion. Seto is more of a top 3rd line player and Cullen lacks the passingskills to be on 2nd IMO.
