but if Samuelsson was back most likely that would be the 3rd line as Sammy would take Abby's spot

I honestly think the kids are good enough to destroy that matchup and have all earned a shot at permanent roster spots, especially if we are trying to make the playoffs this season. Cleary hasn't gotten 1 point this season I think in a bottom 6 role, or 1 or 2 at most, and he is making 2.8 million, though obviously this season its less due to shortened nature. Hopefully Tatar is called up soon, he really seems like the real thing and it was nice knowing our 3rd line could generate offence when he was a part of it
If you want your 3rd line to be a scoring line you go with option B, if you want a grind line you go with option A.

Babcock has wanted to grind out games so apparently option B is not anything he's even going to consider. It's too bad but it is what it is at this point.
