Lets see what happens, hopefully Kreider grabs the bull by the horns.

More likely, the team lacks depth and is desperately trying to see who can fill in. Segal, Newbury, Ferriero, Mash, Miller, Kreider, Thomas and Haley all got called up. Hrivik would've been but for injury.

They tried recalling 3 full lines of AHL forwards, and could not get anything out of them. The problem isn't Torts, it's depth.
