I think it was you that said that line needed to exist in order to fix the top line. I said at the time, and feel the same way now, that they can be effective if used properly.

They need to play sheltered minutes with a healthy dose of Ozone starts. They're going to get pinned in their own zone for lengths of time in some games, but they have the potential to forecheck the hell out of the opposition. Like a 4th line that could actually score.

We were already using the Schenn line as the 3rd line as far as TOI goes, so just keep that the same.
