EC has no heart and no balls. We need someone on that 4th line that is going to forecheck and cycle, and generally make life a pain for the defense. Call up Mitchell or something, the guy looked hungry in camp and outplayed EC for that roster spot. Plus, he's somewhat of a vet, so its not like you'd be calling up a youngster and giving them almost no icetime. EC should be a depth guy for injury to the Top-9, not being useless on the 4th line. Torts already uses our 4th line very sparingly. When they're out there they should at least be an effective energy line. Having EC there completely controverts that philosophy.
