For me, it's fairly simple.

Kalinski for one, has already played quite a few games in the NHL and done fairly well. He can absolutely skate at the NHL level, and fill a role on the 4th line.

The only other guy taht has seen real NHL time was Nodl, and I'm not convinced he can fill a role better than Kalinski. Nodl's skill set seems kind of average across the board for me; whereas as Kalinski is a very good skater.

The remaining options are guys who have seen little or not time in the NHL, let alone the NHL playoffs.

It's merely minimizing risk.
