Simply put, our best 12-14 forward line-up does not include Eric Tangradi if we are healthy.
I don't see how all these guys have been "clearly better" than ET. it can be argued that the whole 3rd line has been pretty bad/invisible the past ~10 games as well as TK on the 2nd line. Not to mention Adams who could prolly score a hattrick on MAF and still get a regular shift.

IMO with how poorly some of the individuals have been playing on the 3rd line, what's that harm in giving ET some 3rd line mins or at least an regular shift with the 4th line.

I'd like to see a total bottom 9 shuffle:

Tangradi - Vitale - Sullivan
Cooke - Park - Adams
