Same with Kristo, but I think since he is smaller, he can use some time down there. These other teams can develop on the lower lines, but we cannot? Detroit makes a habit out of it. These other teams have young players like this up and the vets slide down filling in the middle lines. Was Saad better than Sharp/Kane last year on Chicago? No, but he played on the top line with Toews and Hossa.

I don't understand why we cannot mix in the youngsters and the vets and when things are close, see what they have. IF they cannot, slide someone else on the line for later game situations while they figure that aspect out. Kreider and Miller's speed and size could help a lot right now.
