Went MZA for the exact same reason I argued so hard for AA as the 2nd line center - if Torts wants to win this year, he needs to count on the kids to come in and contribute. If this team is going to make the playoffs (which is what I personally think he must do in order to keep his job), he needs MZA to come in and make a splash like Prucha did in his first year. Torts needs to play him at 2nd line RW and hope he performs.
If he's making conservative, low-risk/low-reward moves like playing Prospal at 2nd line center and Callahan at 2nd line RW, then he's conceding a bottom 3rd in the league finish. And he's conceding his job.
What's it matter? The 2nd and 3rd line will probably get the same ice time.
