I Don't think that putting Nyquist or Tatar in place of Cleary would make us worse, quite the opposite actually, but I also don't think it would be beneficial to Tatar or Nyquist to be playing 6 to 10 minutes a night with guys like Miller, and Emmerton when they could be playing 20+ minutes a night in GR with other prospects.

Bringing those guys up also means losing players for nothing through waivers and depleting the depth we have to replace players who get injured.
