Everyone back to playing their accustomed positions and Kunitz and Iginla can carry a line, Morrow will be fine on #2 LW and the 3rd line has speed and some skill too.
This makes the most sense by far to me. I'm in!
A Coach's job is to put people in the best position to succeed and I don't see how moving Neal to save Dupuis is a good move. I love Dupuis and part of why I do is that he is so versatile and plays his ass off no matter what you ask him to do. Putting him on the 3rd line adds to that line and more importantly doesn't subtract from the 2nd line.
So adding or at the very least not subtracting from the first line with Iginla at RW.
Letting Neal play in his most effective position and adding Morrow in front of the net for the 2nd line.
Adding Dupuis defense and speed and hustle and hitting and offense to the 3rd line. Cooke Sutter Dupuis is an excellent defensive line you can put out against any top line in the NHL.
Here's hoping that these losses allow HCDB to see the light and give him an excuse to put his players where they should be.
