Fletch, wouldn't

He needs third and fourth liners (guys like Hossa, Betts, Hollweg, Ward and Ortmeyers, Callahan (oops)) to score. He really should sit back and watch some games and take note what's wrong, and why it's wrong. Who works well with who and in what role. It's not really that difficult.
simply putting people where they are best set up for success be a start? There is no doubt that Prucha does not belong there. But wouldn't the 3rd line be better suited if Betts was not centering it? Wouldn't the 2nd line be better off without Cullen? That would certainly be a start. He can have a good 4th energy line with Hollweg, Betts & Ortmeyer. He can have a decent 3rd line with Cullen, Ward and give someone like Callahan. That does not solve the 2nd line center issues, but it would make the bottom-2 lines a bit better. I think that as a 3rd liner, Cullen would be fine.

And, it certainly is not shock that Krog did not succeed as a 2nd line center. There is a reason that he was put on waivers. The fact that he is playing on the 2nd line and Prucha is on the 4th is mind-boggling.
