I'm fine with White callup. But we need a backup plan if the D'Ago/MaxPac experiment doesn't work up front. So at one point, I would not have been against a guy called to start on the 4th line but to get some shifts on the Pleks line if needed. Would White be able to hold his own on that line for a short period of time? Would Trotter be more able to do it? Or like I suggested before, how about turning Maxwell into a winger and use him there until AKost comes back. Yes, we are not talking about a big punishing winger who'll win his battles along the board, but you need to work with what you have.

And frankly, out of the players we have, the only one who could hold his own offensive on a Pleks line, could be Maxwell. Unless, you want to give Darche a try....I know he's slow, still he's a sniper who could at least be tried 1 or 2 games.
