This is all on Carlyle. He did the same thing with Lupul in Anaheim. He is a very poor judge of talent and needs to get his head out of his ass. Actually, what needs to be done is have a 3rd scoring line put together. Maybe its time to try Frattin and MacArthur on his wings and send Hamilton back down to the Marlies (once Lupul is back).
Hard to fault Carlye for putting Grabo on the third line. Kadri has clearly out played him. Bozak is likely better situated to play with Kessel than Grabo is and is obviously better at faceoffs.
That being said, going into the playoffs the 4th line, "energy" line can be dropped. Don't need a fighting line in the playoffs.
Would be nice to try and get a third scoring line with Grabo leading the charge. Keep a strong checking line for the 4th.
That being said, I'm just some random kid sitting at my keyboard. I'm sure the coaches with actual experience know better.
