    Forget about which number gets assigned to the line, but...

    Cammalleri - Kopitar - Brown
    Pearson - Kempe - Toffoli
    Iafallo - Carter - Gaborik
    Clifford - Shore - Lewis
    Laich

    ...sure looks attractive. At least one of those lines should be going well on a nightly basis. Sure, ideally you would like a better first line winger option, but that should be easy to improve upon at the deadline if you are still in contention.

    Default Carter out "multiple weeks".

    I guess we can get creative with the lines during the mid-season doldrums, OR... Just go with what's been working, or had proven to work extremely well in the past.

    iafallo - kopitar - brown
    Pearson - Carter - Toffoli

    Then you cross your fingers, and slap together something like..
    Cammalleri - Kempe - Gaborik

    Also going back to that 4th like that was rolling hot at the start of the season..
    Clifford - shore - Lewis.

    I certainly have my doubts about the above third line clicking, but if they managed to somehow, look out league!!

    I'm leery of taking Iafallo off of the first line. IMO he's the largest single factor in the reawakening of Bropitar. I'm hesitant too mess with a good thing and that still leaves plenty of flexibility for lines 2 & 3.

    From the standpoint of comparing the line roles between these guys and the Triple Crown line:
    Kopi = Dionne
    Brown = Simmer
    Iafallo - Taylor

    I understand its fun to talk about line adjustments, but IMO its just way too early. We need to look at this issue when Carts is ready to play. I mean, we have no idea how Iafallo and Kempe will be playing at that time, and IMO that's what's going to dictate where Carts plays.

    Unless Kempe goes nuts, Carter goes back to 2C where he belongs. 2 top centers is a real advantage. (see Pitt) I'd love to see Kempe develop at 3C.

    If Kempe keeps going as he has, I don't know that there'd be a better 1-2-3 center lineup in the league.

    McDavid, Draisaitl, RNH would be better if McLellan got his head out of his ass.

    Team is starting to miss Carter imo. Donít know when he will be back but they are starting to miss his presence and his game.
