EP will have Bo and Boes ahead of him and Sutter/Beagle doing heavy lifting on the two 'defensive' lines with likely sheltered 'Sedin' usage. That's fair. They were the focus. They definitely drew top match ups. MacD & RNH. But out of scale? Was RNH or McDavid also tasked with D zone face off's against opposing top lines? McDavid? No. Nor was Bo the last two years, ''breaking out.'' Horvat arrived in 2016/17; leading us with 52 points. When Sutter played 81 games. Bo scored just 40 points in 2015 / 16? When Sutter missed 3/4's of the season. And it was Bo tasked with shutting down top opposition. And he struggled with that, in spite of a great face off %.
