madden. minus 5
kobasew. minus 5
nystrom. minus 6
(-5)+(-5)+(-6) = sucking it bigtime for checking line = too old + wrong line + too passive = minus 16.
in order to get some positive values in this equation.

Ya....that isn't going to happen so I'd say stop with wishful thinking. They should just juggle the lines to the way they should be anyways. When Lats gets off the 4th line, and Clutter goes to his rightful spot, things will be a little bit better for those lines.
That line is terrible offensively. I know they haven't scored, but I haven't seen anything even close. They rarely ever have the puck. They are skating around the offensive zone with their heads cut off
Both Kobasew and Nystrom have looked practically invisible IMO. From what I've seen, Kobasew's more of a forechecker than a hitter or defensive guy. Nystrom looks like a hitter, but not much else. They definitely need to change up these lines and put Clutter back in the bottom six.
