Yes, I agree. All three pay the price along the boards in the offensive zone. The second has Kovalev who is very good at grinding along the boards and Plekanec isn't so bad either. I believe Samsonov is the weakest link on that line since he is simply not good at all along the boards. Samsonov should learn to find holes in the offensive zone to receive passes and shoot the puck rather than skate around once he has the puck.
