You have a balancing act to play because you don't want to be constantly shuffling lines and putting players in unfamiliar positions, but lines that spend too much time together engage in groupthink. They get comfortable doing the same things, become predictable, and don't have any new ideas.

This is one of the reasons I think guys like Kreider, Hagelin, and Miller had immediate impact coming in... they broke the groupthink and threw a wrench in the equasion such that the team started to play differently. Also, opposing teams didn't have them as well scouted.
