I'd rather Zibby with Spezza though, so put Condra when he's healed. Helps the possession even more.
This is my thinking as well. It's so nice having quality bottom 6 lines. I'd still rather Pageau and have Condra with Grant but it should work well in theory.
As an aside, Face off numbers are really improving for this team. That's probably more of a function of playing games at home but Turris has brought his % up to 47.4 after he was around 40 to start the year. Grant is delivering with 52.8%. He's been perfect for that role.
Edit: upon further review, Turris' home fo% is 55.0. So yeah, definitely a big part of this is home ice.
