That's not the case at all. Saad would be shifted from the 1st line to the 2nd line, in favor of Sharp... but that's hardly a knock on Saad.
Not necessarily directed at you, but if people who are knocking Saad had watched this kid play all year, they wouldn't be saying some of the things that are being thrown around here. There's no doubt that he belongs in the top 6 and for how good he played in the beginning of the season, I'm surprised he didn't put up more points. He plays a great 2-way game and competes hard every shift. He's Andrew Ladd reincarnate, IMO.
