Cooper is a waste of bandwidth when it comes to projecting lines and keeping up with meaningful Preds news. He makes me miss having a real beat writer every day.
11th in ES time on ice per game. 3 way tie for 9th in ES points. Hendricks is his most common linemate. Starts and ends the least in the offensive zone. Nothing you said is convincing me isn't our 4th line center. Not really sure what it being balanced has to do with anything. It's probably the best 4th line in the league, but it is still our number 4 line.

I agree Cooper leaves much to be desired, but he was right with the line combos. Only difference was Fisher was a late go so the centers got shuffled around. Smith started the game with Goose.
