That makes sense. Whoever plays with EK will log the most minutes so the question will become do you give those (at least initially) to Cowen (coming back from serious injury) or Methot. Cowen also wants to develop his offensive side and being paired with EK could make him hold back. Playing with Gryba might mean he can take more offensive risks. 2 hitters would be a tough pair to play against.

In any case for next season the potential top 6 of EK, Methot, Gryba, Cowen, Weir and Phillips gives Stache many options in his regular pairings, on the PK and pp. Having said that Bryan Murray will probably change that up by finding an experienced D to push one of the rookies to a backup role.
