The problem I have with this is that I'm not optimistic about NB's 2nd half. He'll be playing an NHL season roughly twice as long as what he's used to.

As others have said, for all intents and purposes, our top two lines are really 1 and 1a not 1 and 2. Yes he's going to feel pressure making a jump to the NHL and having expectations but that same pressure is going to alleviated by the strength of his linemates.

I really think he's AO's center (I think it's crystal clear to everyone that AO needs a playmaker more than AS) and the sooner he gets used to the position the better. Don't throw him into it after 40 games when his body is pretty much ready to take a few months off.
