It's my hope that Montreal's third line is superior to most teams' second lines in a few years...if Mac is playing on a third line with de la Rose and Eller for instance, and they are a dominant force....I'll be satisfied that he didn't "bust". On good teams it's the top 9 that is important...they are often interchangeable.
Well, if we're talking about a third line that's superior to most teams' second lines, then it's not really a third line anymore, more like a 2B

But I get what you're saying. If he ends up into a more physical René Bourque, it certainly wouldn't be all that bad. I'll still be pissed if Zykov ends up a quality top 6 player, like I think he could be, knowing we passed on him 3 times, no less.
