But Tortorella is mostly playing 2 lines right now... 3rd line has seen minimal ice time.... Only 3 shifts in last night's game during the 2nd period according to Brooks....
There's no way they bring Grachev up to try and make a scoring line out of the 4th line that isn't going to play much anyway.... I mean no way they take him out of Hartford skating 18-22 minutes a night and bring him up to the NHL to skate 6-8 minutes a night on the 4th line....
Trades or injuries are the only way it would happen....
