rendering all 3 lines as cycling machines: basically useless and unable to score (i.e. - the way Torts has been throwing it out there the past month)
Eh, I wouldn't go that far.
Kreider - Richards - Nash could be good if Richards finds his game at all. Nash skates the puck in nicely and attracts a lot of attention to himself. Kreider has a solid shot and he's fast and strong - good for chasing the puck and/or getting into openings that defenders leave by doubling up on Nash. Richards is the question mark, like he's going to be on any line until he gets his game together.
Hags - Step - Cally isn't that useless. They've been the only line with any offense recently. I don't mind those guys cycling because it works when they do it and they're the types of players it makes sense for, at least Hags and Callahan are. Stepan is just doing whatever is asked of him recently.
I just want to see the end of Richards, Nash and Gaborik together. I want them on 3 seperate lines if possible. Nash with two other guys that he can actually make plays and score goals with, and Richards and Gaborik apart. They're not going to get better by fighting it along side each other.
