Except one...

Why hasn't Richards been dropped between Dubinsky and Callahan yet? Every other possibly permutation has been tried except this, I don't get it. 2 goal scorers that aren't scoring and a supreme playmaker. Seems like common sense.


There was...
Dubi Richards Gaborik
And
Stepan Richards Callahan
but Never
And several versions of
Dubinsky Callahan +
but never
Dubinsky Richards Callahan ....WTF?!?!


Like I've been saying all summer...
Dubinsky Richards Callahan
XXX Stepan Gaborik

A healthy Gabby doesn't need Richards to score and scoring throughout the lineup is harder to stop then scoring piled on one line which easy easier to defend against.

I would definitely try that. That leaves a possible line of Wolski-Anisimov-Gaborik as well which I think would be solid. I don't think Artie's ever been tried with Gabby for an extended period of time so I'd like to see that.

IMO AA is a two-way shutdown guy with offensive ability. 3rd line with BB on his wing and Prust or Feds on his other side.

Stepan and MZA/Wolski should be with Gabby. Hell, Christensen Stepan Gabby would probably be fine.
