We have 4 incredible offensive talents up front, let's pair them up.
If possible we should get Yak and Hall on different lines. That forces the opposing team to divide up their shutdown pairings and lines.
Alternatively we can slap Hall, RNH, and Yakupov onto one line. Every one of these players has shown they can produce with anybody at the NHL level (RNH was top 10 in NHL scoring for the first 20 or so games last year playing with Ryan Smyth). We can "talent overload" the opposing shutdown units so to speak.
