I voted 'maybe.'

If Ullström keeps working his tail off and Okposo keeps whiffing, it absolutely warrants a look. It's not all about having a skillset, it's about utilizing it.

Currently Okie's playing like he should be on a 3rd line and Ullström is playing like there's a fire under his ass. I think #41 would give JT more space & time - he may not have 7th overall pick skill as #21 does, but his size, skating and effort could give "Die Wünderkind" a LOT more to work with as it's easier to defend JT when KO's still kind of lost in the sauce, as compared to Ullström bearing down on the RW side.

I'd give it 5 more games so we have a 12 game sample to go from. If our 'Swedish Meatball' is still playing like he has more 'KO' than KO, play the hot hand and swap #1-RW & #3-RW. It couldn't hurt to test Ullström's ceiling and light a fire under KO's ass at the same time.
