I guess I'd just like to keep using a 6 man D with Tao in it. The end result is the same, lets get Tao up here and on the PP and Kovy off the point.
Kovalchuk absolutely cannot play the point anymore. It was never a good idea, nor will it ever be. Zajac at the point makes the most sense to me, when he comes back.
I don't forwards at the point in general but yeah if Tao isn't up here then TravTrav and Larsson at the point would be a drastic improvement. In the mean time I wouldn't be against Fayne sliding up to the first unit and play opposite point to Larsson, assuming the roster stays the same.
Almost every team seems to go with a forward at the point. They just have to have hockey smarts to do so. Brad Richards being a key example.
Doesn't mean I have to like it! I'm a nonconformist dammit!
