So, you want a guy who is in his second year to center the top line?
The same guy that had a rough time in the tail end of his first season?
You know, the guy who was in the Calder discussion until he fell off the map due to the longer grind of an NHL schedule?
Yep. Who else do we have? I expect he'll be better in his second year than his first. But if it makes you feel better you could switch the top two lines considering it doesn't make a difference which order I list them in but only how much ice time they get. It's worth noting that Datsyuk was on our "2nd line" last year and still had top line minutes. You're getting WAY too caught up with designations.
