However, I do think it might be time to move Raffl back down the lineup despite how hot the first line has been. I think the reason Giroux and Voracek are killing it right now is because they are talented players who got off to slow starts and now the bounces are starting to go their way. It's not because Raffl was the missing piece that somehow complements those two perfectly.
There are 9 legitimate top 9 players on the team and Raffl isn't one of them. Berube shouldn't make this harder than it has to be.
so who moves up? Hartnell? Simmonds?
I am against breaking up that top line right now. all 3 players seem to compliment each other really well. they had been looking for a combo that could get the top line going all season and now its working. leave it alone.
Hartnell doesnt deserve to be on the top line. He had his shot and failed. badly.
Keep the top line together, put Downie back on the Couturier and Read line.
if anyone should be moved to the 4th line its Schenn. He has been fairly bad for awhile now.
