Get youth and agitation ability on the 1st line. It hasn't looked "rolling the dice" kind of plan. They have been ultimately most productive line so far. Why break something that seems to be working?

At earlier years, Homer complimented the line well, when he was older and Z&D were younger. Now Z&D are older and AKader brings a younger legs and the same role player there.

With Bertuzzi, Cleary or Franzen it would be only a line of old goats. Andersson could give another option of young screener/worker there. But we need him more at center than Abdelkader, so it's now Kader there.

I liked how Abdelkader agitated Crosby in the Pens-meeting. That Z-D-Ab will be very very hard to play against at next season. Selke-Selke-Agitator -line.
