If its Anti-Krueger to bury one of our leading point scorers on the 3rd line, I think I'm 100% with Krueger

It's not burying him if the time is split between 2 & 3. Reinhart give Cozens a great vet on his wing to help him learn the ropes. Stacking your top 2 lines and letting your bottom 6 be a dumpster fire doesn't work. Best to spread your scoring throughout the lineup.

I mean your top 2 line should be splitting the most time, their 3rd line may be Ruotsalainen - Cozens - Thompson, if they split draws with the 4th line they still get decent ice time while picking and choosing what situations to put them in. you could give that 3rd line mostly offensive draws and the 4th line heavily defensive draws (which they do, it was in the 90% percentile last year). I dont know how the bottom 6 is a dumpster fire. their 4th line has 3 players that all recently had 20+ points and their 3rd line has a lock at Center, an extremely promising Euro in the middle of a breakout year, and a prospect theyre high on and who has proving me wrong in camp so far.
