Here's what I'd do. I'd keep the 4th line intact and say you boys keep up what you're doing. On Tuesday, Jaskin goes in, McDonald sits. Oshie comes back, someone else sits (Perron, Stewart, Berglund, Schwartz, Tarasenko). But it's musical chairs. Those guys remaining in the lineup don't produce, McDonald comes right back in, someone new goes out. Just keep rotating, let Jaskin get a few games in a row, let Oshie work himself back in. I wouldn't remove Sobotka or Backes. Backes needs to be more productive offensively but he's still a physical force every game, and seems to have really upped that element the past few weeks. That's at least an important impact on the game he's having so I'd leave him in. Basically it's like who wants to win a spot in the lineup for the playoffs on this team? Ok, prove it and score (without being defensively irresponsible).
