To guess what the lines will be on any given game night - when even Ruff isn't certain - is a fools errand.
It's like this....
Zach Kassian is playing on the top line in Vancouver, and succeeding. Now you could arguably say "Well, yeah he's playing/practicing/conditioning w/the Sedins...". But the fact is Ruff would never do something like that. Lack of patience or confidence in himself or his players is anyone's guess.
You can point to individual play (Myers, Stafford, et al), but when I look at them collectively I see a team that is no longer motivated to succeed for their coach.
