I'm keeping things as much the same as injuries will allow...
Raffl - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - Schenn - Simmonds
LeCavalier - Couturier - Downie
VDV - Hall - Rosehill/McGinn
Well, two things: First, I think we're just tossing out setups we'd like to see next time we shake things up (at least I am), and second, I'm not all that satisfied with 5v5 production right now. We're winning games on the strength of the second line and the PP support, but sooner than later, the second line well is going to dry up.
We're finding success now, but at the same time, I don't think it's healthy to ignore the issues that are lurking in the background. The Leafs did that, and they have totally imploded. So, yeah, I'm satisfied with the team's success, but I don't think that's necessarily justification for keeping to the status quo until the wins stop coming.
