The third line would not suffer from it, while the fourth line would gain a lot. Bégin is a better player with Bonk, and it gives a lot more flexibilty to Latendresse. Big, physical line with good defensive awerness and good scoring potential. What's wrong?

Rioght now, playing Bégin on a fourth line is a waste. I'd rather see him on left wing with Bonk and Johnson.

Lapierre also deserves a call back.

MY lines

Higgins-Koivu-Ryder (no explanation required)
Samsonov-Kovalev-Perezhogin (give them a fair chance)
Bégin-Bonk-Johnson (perfect combo)
Latendresse-Plekanec-Lapierre (size, youth and energy)
