exactly why id love to see him get some minutes with the top two lines this next week. imo thats the only way we get a real sense of if he should stay in the nhl or not. cause hes not a 4th line grinder. if he can handle big important minutes on a scoring line and get some chances, then keep him. if he isnt quite there than send him down

id go with: (just to try)

kane - jokinen - scheifele
ladd - little - wheeler
poni - antropov - wellwood
(thor,wright,peluso) - slater/burmi - slater/burmi

burmi had a good game and is a strong checker and defender.. which is why i would put him on the 4th line instead of wellwood. i dont see kyle filling that role as effectively
The 3rd line is the line that is matching up against the other teams top guns...
The 2nd line is the line that is sheltered...
That's why if I was doing what you're trying to do I'd do
