Since the beginning of the season, several attempts to partner Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield have been tried, but nothing seems to have worked out in the eyes of Martin St-Louis.

While Sean Monahan did produce some interesting results, the head coach reshuffled his lineup after the loss to the Wild.
Against all odds, it was Mike Hoffman who found himself on Suzuki's left side yesterday, and it must be said that the results were not exactly flamboyant with the latter. The 32 year old forward no longer has the skills to play on a top-6 NHL team.
Many fans want Martin St-Louis to experiment with a player who was never really considered for the right side of the first line.
In that sense, as my colleague Zach Gingras-Tourangeau of Fanadiens.com attests, in terms of pure skill, Kirby Dach is probably one of the Habs' most talented forwards after Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.
So why not try to get all three of them together on the same unit?
On a power play sequence yesterday, Dach showed what he could offer if he was combined with the duo of Suzuki and Caufield.
No. 77 created a solid scoring chance for Caufield, with excellent puck protection that drew two Sabres players to him and made the uncovered free-agent in front of the net forgetful.
By the way, many observers have been questioning Dach's ability to play center in the NHL long-term in recent days, so why not take advantage of his offensive skills and insert him on the wing of a very offensive trio?
He would finally have a real chance to establish himself and potentially unlock offensively with the two amigos.
Do you feel the same way about giving Kirby Dach a chance on the team's first line?
