Irwin's max is probably a 5-6, while both Acolatse and Tennyson could sneak into 3-4 roles when it's all said and done.

Despite his vastly improved play earlier this season I'm still not buying Doherty just yet.
Agree with 1st paragraph 100%, and maybe to add to this, it depends on who gets injured and what kind of role needs to be filled.

The sample size is a bit small, but I do feel like Doherty turned a corner. I hope when he comes back he can continue doing exactly what he was doing.
