A most accurate description may be to say that we have a group of 7 players who rove back and forth from second line to third line: the four above along with Umberger, Dubinsky, and Anisimov.
I like this forward group the best, but purely in terms of offensive productive capability, the Jackets have had better years.
I agree with all of this except one point. I would call him Fo Dangles - watch him dance.
