I think a Wright - Slater- Machacek 4th line would be great, Wright and Thorburn are redundant pieces, IMO.
And that's why Wright is in the show and Mach on the farm? When I said smarter I referred to Mach taking some dumb penalties with us at the end of the season, Wright seems pretty disciplined, he (Mach) may be better offensively but he's also a couple years older give Wright some more time. There was something about Mach that seemed to turn off the Jets on him this year, I actually thought he was a lock to make the team.
