Unless they put Palmieri on IR this is the only way to do it - they probably want to give McMillan a chance to have at least a practice with the team before sending him back.

I agree that Maroon was playing like an ideal 4th liner though.
Maroon-Bonino-Etem was absolutely great when together. Thats what Id like to see down the stretch on the 4th unit, they brought a lot of energy to the team.

The part I bolded is key though, and I dont really know what to do with that line. We've tried just about every combination of Ryan-Selanne-XXXXXX and no one has worked, other than Koivu and Palmieri in one game, and both play their best on other lines. 2nd unit has been a mess all season, barring like 3-4 games where they loaded up on points.
