I see no reason to take him off.

I'd want to see this:

Callahan-Brassard-Nash
Zuccarello-Moore

Once we gain possession, Cally just parks his ass in front of the net. Zucc is a lefty, so he'll play the left point so he can pass all the way across the ice on his forehand. Moore is also a lefty, but we need to get him the shot from the middle of the ice.

Brassard will be Brassard, and Nash will hopefully be Nash.

Only problem here is Brassard will lose 60% of the draws.
I completely agree with you, not often do I read such a smart, factual post, kudos to you man! And I completely agree on the forwards. Although I have to be frank and admit I **** 2 bricks every time a weak defensive forward like Zuccarello is on the point. He will be beat if they clear the zone and rush the puck up ice. He is very weak defensively. I'd have this


Callahan-Brassard-Nash
Moore-Stralman

Zuccarello-Stepan-Pyatt/Boyle
Richards-MDZ
