Because I view Pavs as a much better player than Clowe (Clowe is still really good). I don't believe in the 'reward' logic, just that playing Pavs 3rd line minutes would be a major waste for a player of his talent.
This also lines up with my belief that if Tmac is going to continue to go 'Power vs. Power', then our 3rd line should be designed to score a bunch of goals against opponents 3rd and 4th lines. While Pavs could do that, I believe he is best suited to play his strong two-way game against opponents best players.
