The biggest problem/ concern would be how the minutes be shared up between the 3.
I think it wouldn't be so much the 'lines' when it comes to ice time, Duchene @ 21:00, Stastny @ 20:00, O'Reilly @ 19:00...

You basically run three centers, sometimes Stastny or O'Reilly might be put out with the fourth line wingers in certain situations. Mitchell could be used at center or LW, depending on the situation.

Besides last game (O'Reilly @ 16:28) O'Reilly has played 17,18,19, and 18 minutes. Duchene & Stastny are both still getting 19-21 minutes a game, so they are all already being given plenty of ice time.

Landeskog gets about 19 a game right now as well, the rest of the wingers are mostly situational. So the three centers and the top 9 are already being managed effectively.

If you combine them and only took the best parts, you'd get a pretty good hockey player. If you only took the worst parts, you have a guy that would struggle in AHL.

But yeah, he's probably going to get paid and be as well liked as David Jones is now.
From what I have seen Stalberg's effort level is far and away better than Jone's on a consistent basis. The show up one day, and disappear for three, is what really drives me crazy about Jones.
