This year, Koivu hasn't shown much chemistry with Selanne, and it's not speculation - the 3rd line has been pretty badly degraded when Koivu is removed on multiple occasions. And you're right - when the choice is to break up one of the top 3rd lines in the league that's outperforming many teams' second lines, it's a no-brainer - you don't touch the 3rd line. It would be different if the team wasn't winning. But they are, and it's just like wanting Selanne moved back to 1st PP when the Ducks are the top rated unit in the league with him on the 2nd - the team needs outweigh the needs of Selanne.
