A bottom 6 that can not only hit but also give an opposing team fits means you don't need all your scoring to come from the top 6 as they'll earn scoring chances on their own.
How are they being sheltered this season? IIRC (I don't know how to find the stats to back this assumption up if someone can help me lol), the Hall/Nuge/Eberle line played against the top defenseman last season almost every game they played together?
