Heres my take. Svatos has shown that he has a great set of hands, and has been playign very well with Niko this preseason. I think a Battaglia - Nikolishing - Svatos line can grind if needed, but still has a scoring touch. Battlaglia had 20 goals 2 years ago as did Niko, Svatos's devolopment would probably still be right on par. McCormick would fit in just as well. I would much rather have Svatos *i'm a sucker for rookies with a chance to score*. That being said, one of the two has to go back to Hershey, b/c otherwise development time is being wasted.

As for the *Svatos being an ideal top 6 call up* He could still shift to the top 6 line and have McCormick called up to fill in his spot. This shouldn't matter. Granato and Tocchet just need to decide if they want a goalscorer, or another tough guy on the thrid line. They also need to look at Svatos's injury last year and decide if he is too injury prone as of now to play on a predominately grind-type line.
