I would be fine him on the 3rd line though, particularly with Laughton and Read if not Couturier and Read. They would help him out defensively.

Another point I want to make is that I don't necessarily know whether or not Hartnell will be on the top line next year.

So basically, if Akeson makes the team, the possibilities are:

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Simmonds - Couturier - Schenn
Akeson - Laughton - Read
Rinaldo - Hall - Talbot

Akeson - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - Couturier - Schenn
Simmonds - Laughton - Read
Rinaldo - Hall - Talbot

Laughton - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - Schenn - Read
Simmonds - Couturier - Gagne
Rinaldo - Hall - Talbot

Gagne - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - Schenn - Read
Simmonds - Couturier - Akeson
Rinaldo - Laughton - Talbot
