I hope Lavy mixes things up a lot in the preseason to see who has chemistry, as he said. In the top 9 we have lots of guys who can play C and wingers who can play either side, so there are options to mix and match.
On paper a 3rd line of Gagne-Couturier-Read could be a fantastic two-way line. That is, if you ignore Gagne's inability to finish and the health questions.
