Perhaps, but I tend to stick to Stevie Y's philosophy in that you shouldn't have too many players playing outside their positions especially if they are not experienced at doing it on the highest levels. For example, in my book, E Staal is a center who can play LW. That's it. E. Staal with his revived play is a good fit on the left side with Bergeron and a good 2nd face-off man for d-zone draws should Bergeron get tossed from the circle. He's a much better option there on that line now than other options out there as some suggest Richards Towes and Nash just because they were awesome in 2010. That argument always drives me bonkers.
Where I had Bergeron on the 3rd. line I meant Towes. (I think you understood what I meant, but just for the sake of clarification.) Bergeron is my 4th line center.
