I think that this more than anything is why ANA could be really tough come playoff time. Health too. Obviously.
He mixes it up but gives confidence to those that earn it. If he wants speed on the 2nd line, he might bump Etam to it. I don't think most fans have had a problem with it but of course that is because we are winning. Face-off % has been good and of course Power play units have been top notch. They have great balance and any worry about virtego on Hiller (gyldenlove) has been pushed away as Faust has been sidelined. Depth has been the key.
