The way Burns played at forward, point production, etc., is what you want from a first line wing. JT is not the #1 center anymore 5on5; the stats back that. His talent wasn't wasted; he proved that he wasn't #1 during the mid-season slump. If you use Hertl on the left of JT/Burns, you should have a perfect F1 (Burns), F2 (JT), F3 Hertl setup. It's a question as to whether Hertl can play to 2nd line level. Don't hand out labels for history, observe the current level of play.

Marleau (F1)/Couture (F3)/Grabo (F2)
Torres (F1)/Pavs (F2)/Kennedy (F3)

Wingels F1
Sheppard F2
Burish F3 (ugh!)
Desi F2
