They need to split up McD and Leon. Nuge is useless right now


That's the thing - as much fun as it is to watch 97 and 29 together, it just completely neuters the 2nd line. IMO, the lift to the 2nd line >>> the drop off on line 1 when you replace one of them with Nuge or Hyman or Kane.

What are the stats GF vs GA with 97 and 29 on the same line? It seems like they dominate and create tons of high danger chances, but my eyes don't always tell me the truth

I agree. When you put McD and Leon together, you are almost guaranteeing yourself to score 1-2 goals a game when they are playing well. First 10 mins of the game, they were unreal and probably unlucky not to get at least 1 goal. But it only works if Nuge can play as a passable second line center. He doesn't have to be great, just passable and this playoffs, it's not even close. He's been awful. He's playing as a mediocre at best 3rd line center. I like Bjugstad but he's a 3rd line center. So they have 2 guys trying to be a second line center who aren't capable and they are getting destroyed.
