So Torts isnt going to just have a developing player sit on the sidelines for the last month of season.

I would assume they will pair Moore with Staal, and in the 3rd period probably move Staal with DZ or Girardi and move Stralman back with Moore to play limited ice.
Tortorella will put out the lineup he feels gives him the best opportunity to win. As any coach would in that situation.

And I object to the thought that you can't learn anything unless you're playing in a game. Practicing with the team and watching them up close in the NHL playoffs would be a totally new experience for him.
