However, if you're looking to pump Flynn up because he had a two-goal game, I'd suggest waiting until he proves he can do it more consistently; after all, he's a rookie.
I agree with most of that. Rankin has probably played better than Adam and Mancari this year. Mancari is great on the point on the PP but i havent seen much from him 5 on 5. I just think Rankin is out there way too much. I'd try to give some of his PK minutes to someone else. Flynn is already on PK- maybe Girgs? Rankin is getting more minutes than Foligno, Porter, etc. which should not be happeneing.
