To me, I wouldn't want to split up Coots & Read just because of how important Read is to the transition on that line. He plays the puck on the half wall better than any other player we have right now. I think you'd see that line stuck in the defensive zone a good bit more if it weren't for him. I'd agree that Hartnell isn't as bad defensively as a lot of people make him out to be, but he doesn't compare to Read.
Schenn has looked much better on the RW, so as far as putting him with G, we'd probably have to move Voracek to another line, or have him switch sides. I'm not totally opposed to trying Jake at LW - I think even Berube talked about it earlier in the year.
Hartnell is actually far, far better defensively than Downie; even when Hartnell is sucking he manages to play decently in his own end. That could work out.
I don't trust him for a single second. He does just as much if not more stupid things than Downie does. I'm sick of him ****ing things up constantly and then seeing people defend him because he scores occasionally, meanwhile in the long stretches in between goals he's ruining far more chances. Every player screws up, but he does it so consistently and blatantly that it's infuriating, he doesn't deserve to be on that line at all and should have been taken off months ago. If Giroux can make him look decent then I have faith in anyone else who gets put there.
