I don't always agree with 'ain't broke, don't fix'. You still find ways to improve. If the top line stays the same and the second line gets an additional goal, it's improved. And as mentioned, assuming Jagr continues skating like it has been, I'd guess that the top line at worse stays constant. It's not a guarantee, but nothing is.
Thank you Fletch...the fact that everyone is throwing the "if it ain't broke" nonsense in regards to the 1st line is killing me and makes zero sense when trying to address the shortcomings of the entire team which has 3 other lines that need to contribute if we are to have any meaningful success this season.
