If Lindberg deserves a top-6 spot, he will get it. Twenty years ago, Messier and Turkey were supposed to be on the first two lines, with Nemchinov a lock for the third line. Then Kovalev proved capable of centering the second line (this was before he was moved to the RW), and Turkey was traded with Patrick for Larmer. Incidentally, Patrick was supposed to be a lock as our second offensive defenseman, but once Zubov proved capable, he won the job, with Patrick/Turkey sent away in a trade.
