We appear to be talking about the same thing -- 2nd line as in, the "other" offensive start center. They have players to slot in as checking guys from Larsson to Girgensons to Kea or Compher. At worst, he's got the early-Roy thing mastered, back when Vanek, Roy, Afinogenov got the cake minutes behind the Briere line (#1) and the Drury line (checking).
