Who's been creating energy and standing up for his teamates? White
Who has been surprisingly good on the 3rd/4th line as well as providing great energy?
Prust

(2A) Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gally [Gally and Pacs are developing crazy chemistry / Not a fan of 2 midgets on one line but it works as Gally plays like he is 6'2]
(2B) Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta [Veteran presence that can get dirty and score goals while being defensively responsible]
(2C) Galchenyuk - Eller - Ryder [Eller makes space / Chuckie dirty dangles and sets up Ryder]
(3) Prust - White - Armstrong [Energy line/can still chip in some goals]
Moen

Markov-Subban
Diaz-Gorges
Bouillon-Emelin
Kaberle

This should be our line-up when healthy.
You are forgetting one thing. Prust would not push anyone out of the top 9 since Prust played on the top 9 before he was injured.

You do realize that Galchenyuk has only had 1 point since Prust was injured?

You also realize that Galchenyuk has only 4 shots in 4 games with Prust out? And 3 of those shots came in the last game and TWO games he did not even have a single shot.

People forget so quickly what Prust does for our young players like Galchenyuk.

You might not miss Prust on the 3rd line. Galchenyuk does.
