I'm happy when Maroon forechecks and hits and plays well down low. I expect a hell of a lot more from Etem, and he's not outplaying Maroon in my opinion. He's getting easy 4th line/3rd D pairing matchups he should be able to exploit with his skill (but isn't), he falls down more than he should, and I'd prefer he was back in the AHL learning to score goals and (more importantly) use the other players on the ice a little better. He hasn't been horrible, but he hasn't been good either IMO. No reason to keep him here for mediocre.
