To be fair, he has made some nice setup passes that should have been buried that weren't - especially to Hossa in games 5 through 15 where it seemed like Hossa simply couldn't get a handle on the puck. I say do not derail the growth path that Saad is on right now. He's playing well and the team is winning and there is a much bigger payoff if Saad continues to grow and gain confidence that if you stick "you know what you get" Carcillo up on the top line.
He's awesome along the boards, has great speed, a developing offensive game, and has played great with Hoss and Toews. Right now they are probably the best puck possession line in the NHL. Zero reason to even mess with that right now.
