Now when Hagelin comes back and one of the kids make it, you could see something like Hagelin-Stepan-Nash,Kreider/Fast-Richards-Callahan, Pouliot-Brassard-Zuccarello, Boyle - Moore - Dorsett.

I think the PBZ-line could be considered a very decent third line.
The Pouliot-Brassard-Zuccarello line contains 3 offensively gifted guys who have never produced at an above average rate in the NHL and have, by and large, been disappointments. Maybe that changes, but I'd be inclined to look at the long and checkered track records, especially for Pouliot and Brassard. I expect them to buzz around, pot a couple of goals, but not produce enough consistently. Not to mention they're an incredibly soft bunch -- I think the line gets broken up the first time they get punched in the mouth by the opposition.
