Honest question: do you make this statement based on McGinn's health or that there wouldn't be a place for him with the line-up you list? My hope is that we see neither of Shelley (who probably should call it a career due to injury and diminished ability) nor Knuble in the line-up, but that McGinn or Z would be up and in with any personnel movement.

Let's say Brière does get moved. I'd hope Gagné slides into his spot on the second line and McGinn takes up a regular position next to Couturier and Read on the third line. That gives the 3 S's (speed, size and scoring) on the top 3 lines.

Then again, if there is any reason to play it cautiously with McGinn and his broken orbital bone, I would expect the Flyers to do so.
