For as long as Markov is on the team, Emelin is likely going to be paired with him for a majority of the game. If Tinordi proves to be effective, it will be in sheltered minutes this season. He is not going to be the next Subban (as far as being thrown into the fire and playing big minutes in his first stint in the NHL). Tinordi is going to be played the same way Pateryn was. He will likely be sent down in a few games after evaluations, unless he completely surprises everyone. Even if that's the case, he will still play sheltered minutes. MT is not going to rush his development, let alone risk breaking the kids confidence.
