You know it wouldn't be the end of the world if we had Perron-Gordon-Percell playing 2nd line minutes and gave Pouliot-DL-Yakupov third line minutes.

No, you're not going to get a ton of goals out of that 2nd line, but you're going to get some. Gordon wins face-offs, Perron gets stuff done in all zones and Purcell is a good set-up man.

That third line has a grinder, a big playmaker and a sniper. Call it a sheltered scoring line if you will. We could do a lot worse.

Now, DL is thrown into the fire and expected to anchor the second line, I'll lose my ****.
