This. Hall lost quite a few recently and has seemingly been replaced by Nate as the third/fourth line C. Stamkos' FO% has risen from 45% to almost 50% this year, while Vinny went from 48% last year to 55% FO success this year. Winning draws is becoming less of an issue, and I guess the coaching staff like what they see from Labrie and Crombeen in toughness and Palat in defensive contributions over what Hall brings to the table.

The timing is a little odd though with Vinny and Pyatt injured. I wasn't too impressed with Johnson last night, aside from his saucer pass to Hedman, but I guess he'll need more playing time to properly prove himself.
