This line will NEVER work!

I like AV in general but he has totally lost me here:
Offensively - anytime they dump it in Zucc or MSL get plastered along the boards and lose puck! There is no size on this line so they can never sustain any offensive zone pressure!

Defensively - similar issue. As we saw with bigger teams like Jets this line can get pinned in their own zone for minutes at a time!

So enough of this craziness! Every good line in NHL has some size! Even Toews and Kane often get Bickell on their wing!

Lines I propose:
Nash - Stepan - Kreider - if it's not broke, don't fix it
Hagelin - Brassard - MSL - MSL has some chemistry with Hagelin. Hagelin can play boards.
Zucc - Richards - Pouliot - Richards sucks but Zucc can play with anyone and will get Richards going.
Carcillo - Boyle - Moore. - if it's not broke.,,

Then on PP sure they can go with Zucc and MSL together since there is more space!

Honestly any combo is better than Zucc and MSL 5 on 5!
