Isbister is underrated, unlike Avery. Him playing with Jagr could be mutually beneficial. You can say the fact that we won all the games Isbo played on first is co-incidence... I wouldn't be so sure.
The fact is that our 1st line consists of cycling masters. You cannot do cycling without 3rd (beside Jagr and Nylander) guy that is strong presence in the corners and able to puckhandle well above average. Avery is much worse than Isbister in that respect, Straka became marginal due to tentative play caused by shoulder pain. Callahan has everything, but needs coaching and time to adjust, something that Straka does not. That is why Renney tried many things after Hossa injury... I agree with Brooks Isbo is the best choice now for that job. Prucha should sit since Shanny and Avery will not.
