Second line has Clowe. Third line had Wellwood; while he's adequate for regular season play for depth scoring, he's too small for a physical playoff series. I'd like someone to replace Mitchell on the third line who could bring that physical presence.

The only player close to fitting that description in the organization is Macintyre, but he's injury prone and unproven.
Macintyre has 4 goals and 4 assists after 42gp, and is a -15. Not sure if he'd be the ideal to fill in that spot...
