Discussion: In the past 20 games, the 3rd and 4th lines have put up as many goals as Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, and Johan Franzen combined. Which bottom six forward has been the most impressive so far and why (Guys like Eaves and Conner are eligible to be chosen even though they're injured at the moment)?
