It’s time to start putting both Zemgus Girgensons and Mikhail Grigorenko in better position’s to succeed. The all rookie line of
Girgensons- Larsson and Flynn has been flying and arguably the best line, but it’s time to put the rookies on other lines. Cody Hodgson has done a solid job centring the first line with Vanek, but he too needs to elevate his game to the next level and pairing him with Girgensons can’t hurt right?
It’s time to start mixing in the rookies with the veterans to see if they can create some chemistry and separating Hodgson and Vanek so they can play with different rookies and help spread the offence may be the best thing long-term for the Sabres. Steve Ott is a guy you can plug into any situation and would be a good mentor for Girgensons. Let Ott and Girgensons handle the dirty work while Hodgson scores.
