Based on a single game sample, the re-mixing of the lines seemed to spark the forwards against the Capitals.
We were all pleasantly surprised by how effective these two were last year, but I have seen many comments that reinforce my feeling that they are not playing as well this year as last.
I would like to see them split, at least for a few games, to see if it jump-starts either of their games. Put one of them with Streit for a little while and see what happens.
This is my first try at a FanPost, so any feedback on whether I did it right or not is welcome.
