I think you are correct. My larger point is that our true centers right now are Z, Pavs, Andersson and Emmerton. Mule, Abdelkader and Filppula are all technically centers but were never as productive as they've been as wingers. Emmerton and Andersson have been DRW because they fill a clear need. Andersson doesn't get much love but I think he's acquitting himself quite nicely. So long as that third line continues to produce I hope Babs keeps them together.

if yoou saw the Chicago game thats on today you shouldve noticed that beautiful vision of Andersson when he passed it infront to Tatar. Tatar and Andersson look great together and I think they will be on a line together for years to come.

Wouldn't be bad to add Nyquist there to complete that ex-Griffins 1st line. You put Lashoff-Smith behind it, and it's a complete unit.

You're wasting your breath, most saw all they needed to see after his first game and passed final judgment on him. I've been impressed with his development and wouldn't you know his line scored our lone goal today.

He played well today. But let's be honest. Everyone looks a lot better compared to the crap surrounding Datsyuk.

I loved that line against the Kings. Still thinks Andersson looks a step or two behind an NHL-caliber player at times though. Seems like his speed varies game to game lol. Could just be the guys he's going against I guess.
