I probably wouldn't mind trying to take a shot at MacLean. I think Palushaj needs just 1 more full season in the AHL and with expiring contracts up front he might have his shot for next season.
MacLean would be more ideal for 3rd line or 4th line roles than Palushaj.
If MacLean was acquired, we could send Palushaj down and have a guy like MacLean with a bit more size and play with some guys like Moen, Kostitsyn, Eller, and Cole and such.
Not saying he would pan out for sure or anything. Just think he would be a better depth guy for the Habs over Palushaj who IMO is only effective in top 6 mins like he is in the AHL.
MacLean would not hurt anything but just have the depth and possible asset on the team if he can turn in to anything decent on the 3rd line. He is a right handed shot is 6'1, 200lbs. 2 points in 5 games +1 not that bad.
I would definetly put that claim in for him.
