Babcock did the same thing to Modano and Legwand. For some reason he doesn't like to play Holland's main "acquisitions."
Is it a head butting, dick measuring thing? Not sure, but he platooned both the former to the 4th line, even though when given top 6 minutes, they produced. Weiss is a legit 2nd line center. He would also be great on the 3rd, between Franzen and Helm. He doesn't deserve to be demoted to the 4th and if I were him, I would start thinking about waiving that clause in Feb. Babcock is going to continue to play him on the 4th and continue with Abby (again, no offense to Justin) on the 1st.
Like I said in the GDT, Justin should be on the 4th with Miller and Glenny. Weiss should be at center between Helm and Franzen. Nyquist should be playing with Dats and Z.
