Prove himself in the NHL. Like I said, he should get a call up in case of injuries, but you can't just trade a player away and call up Maroon to be a regular for the whole season only based on his AHL success.

I don't see Maroon as an ideal grinder or forechecker, nor is he anything special defensively. If he was all of those, he'd be a regular NHL'er long ago. Maroon is a scorer who can hit, but seriously how much is he going to score on the 4th line? Especiall if his linemates are Rakell and Staubitz...

Actually, I hope Bonino is traded if he can't hack it on the 2nd line. He may be sound defensively, but he's slow, soft and he's pretty awful in the faceoff circle. I don't see him as a grinder, although I thought he played with much more intensity last season.
