Yesterday, the Stars experimented with placing Valeri Nichushkin on the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin at practice.
Today, the forward lines were really intriguing, particularly the fourth line.

Yes. The Stars experimented with Alex Goligoski playing forward this morning.
The idea of having a defenseman play forward is something Sami and I discussed on last night's Lone Star State of Hockey podcast, although we discussed Trevor Daley instead of Goligoski.
Whether or not the Stars follow through with this idea of turning Goligoski into a rover remains to be seen. It is an interesting thought, nonetheless.
