I would be happy with him getting 3rd line minutes, and some 2nd unit PP time.
Getting 3rd line minutes with the likes of Lombardi, Crabb, and Tin Man isn't going to help him earn his way into a top 6 player. At this point in his development, he needs competent players to play with.

Just let the kid play.
Crabb had a totally different role. He's decent defensively, has some grit, and was one of our better PKers. Kadri couldn't have filled the same role.
