Nobody knows what the team will look like by next year.It could be all new faces and a younger group if they lower the required UFA age in the new CBA but either way if Mess is on a 4th line with 2 3rd-4th liners like he is now with Simon-Barnaby I'd have no problem with it personally but I could care less about the games played part of it.
Mess in limited minutes and with the right linemates still IS a asset as he has shown in his limited play thus far.
And being that you don't develop kids on the 4th line, especially kids like Moore then it's not as if he is blocking some kids development if he is deployed as a 4th line center.
Basically it depends how this season shapes up and what transpires next summer before any fair decision can be made but to me it would have nothing to do with any further stats and I really don't think that GPed would be a big stat Mess were eager to catch..
