Big line or Share the wealth?

Should Babs neglect Zetterberg's center smarts and use the Big Line to break tight defenses like Minnesota's etc?
Note: This poll assumes we're using the current roster. Don't say "trade Lang"

I'd still like to see Franzen play wing with one of the eurotwins, he's got a pretty good shot and is really hard to knock off the puck, especially around the boards.
Homer - Dats - Shanny
Franzen - Zetterberg - Samuelsson
Williams - Lang - Yzerman
Maltby - Draper - Cleary

Regular season is the time to experiment. I think most people would agree that Hank and Pavel would do wonders with a strong winger to play with them. A guy like Franzen who has an excellent shot could turn out really well alongside either of them.
Taking Franzen off the grind line doesn't even affect them that much anyway. He's an excellent addition, sure, but why couldn't Cleary do just as well in a defensive role?

I agree. Use them with they're hot, but once they start cooling off enough, switch the lines around.

Just look at Ottawa.

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
