By the way, the Pens looked like absolute **** in that 2nd period.
I think he has the balls, but it's still not the smart thing to do. I don't care how many points Iggy has, his play has been very, very underwhelming, especially his board battles.
The problem is, you can insulate him on the top two lines. I'm already weary of Morrow and Sutter being on the same line because Cooke is the only one who can actually skate, so dropping Iggy down to the third and moving Cooke out of there is asking for trouble, especially as a "checking" line.
If anything, I would drop Sutter down to the 4th line and stick Vitale on the third line between between Cooke and Kennedy. They won't score much, but they'll be a pain in the ass to play against, which is typically what you want out of your third line.
