That's a contradiction. If there is no point in keeping Rakell up because he needs more ice time, (3)why would we put Holland in the exact same situation?
1 That is, IF Rakell is better than Holland
2.A prospect can also improve in juniors, but getting the big minutes of play. I doubt that playing 4th line minutes in NHL is better than that.
3. Holland is 22 with his 2nd pro season. Rakell is 19 with only junior experience.
