I don't mean to argue or debate over what is essentially a irrelevant and moot point, but i'm still having trouble grasping that. On a team where after the first forward line, the rest are interchanging, I don't see how people could say that Maclean was only battling one player for a chance to crack the roster. I'm sure Maloney didn't tell Mac that O'Sullivan was the man to beat. Maclean, Tikhonov, POS, and Chip were all battling for 2 open roster spots. Even though you are saying that Maclean was battling for a job for in the top 9, I believe that had he made the team along with Chipchura, he still wouldn't have seen as much ice time as Chip.
