Yes, and by putting Clutterbuck down there with Mitchell moved to center will only improve on that lines speed and even give them a shot at getting a goal instead of just spending time along the boards.
Keeping the 4th line the same while sitting either Bouchard, Coyle or Zucker to put in Pomminville isn't going to change any dynamic of anything.
Sitting Konopka not only improves the 4th line, but it also improves the 3rd line as the Brodziak line was at it's best when Pomminville was there with the 2 B's.
It's about the biggest no-brainer of a lineup decision as there is.
