I don't think Spooner's ready, personally, but I haven't seen enough of him to say that with total confidence. Sadly, he might be the best in-house option, save MacDermid.
I'm most inclined to agree with those that say put MacDermid on the 4th line and move Paille up to the 3rd. It might be to the detriment of the 4th line, but I'm more concerned with the 3rd line being the best it can be than the 4th. The team wins on depth, and right now they're not getting much of anything from beyond the top 6 (and, honestly, there are times that the top 6 is underwhelming too so far).
We saw what being patient with
and Begin lead to... when a player isn't good, you won't gain anything from being patient.
Pouliot got 16g & 16a in limited minutes on the 3rd line ... I'm not sure what more was expected from him. People liked to rail on him for one of two reasons (1, he was a former Hab, and, 2, he wasn't an in-house call-up) but I thought he did all that was asked of him.
