Really impressed/surprised by Laich's play to this point in his return. Its like he has been playing all year. No real rust that I can see, and he even looks more aggresive than I remember him playing in the past. I wonder if he can sustain his current level of play, or will he hit a wall at some point?
Regardless, right now, that 2nd line is very formidable with him on it.
Johansson has been good on the 1st line too. This bumps back 2 players into the later lines which has a ripple effect throughout the lineup and players are slotted correctly.
Same goes for the D. Green and Orlov have been crucial and even Hillen has at least made Schultz sit in the press box.
Now Hendricks isn't playing on the 1st line and can settle into his natural role and go against competition more suited to his skillset for instance.
