If Nino or Strome make the team on the 3rd line then I'd give them two weeks (which should be 6 games) to stick, if they struggle they get sent back to the AHL or OHL respectively.
The 9-game rule doesn't apply to Nino anymore. His ELC started last year when he remained on the NHL roster. Strome's ELC is still a Slide Risk and from the last I heard, Strome is not on that NHL recall list or whatever it is. He should be staying in Junior the rest of this year. The same for Reinhart.
