We'll see, but I guarantee they won't mess with Pageau's line if they are enjoying success. They will have two "number one" lines. Da Costa is more familiar with Petersson and Hoffman and had success with them last year. It's not even 100% whether or not Da Costa is better than Pageau. He's just older and more experienced. Pageau has earned his role for the time being.
Anyways, regardless of where JGP is slotted, he'll be playing with some good wingers. Doesn't have to be on the top line.
