Just by simple math and logic even if Newbury is a healthy scratch he shouldn't be up here on the basis that he's not an NHL player. Aside from that, again going by simple math and logic, between him and Rosehill one literally has to play now that both are up.

Guys like Holmstrom and McGinn don't have more then 4th line upside and can contribute more so it's not hurting their "development" to play there. Guys like Cousins can play on the third line instead of Talbot who has no use there.

This is a problem I'm seeing across the board, everybody wants Couturier to have better wingers and play more minutes. Well that means it'll be less minutes for guys like Voracek & Giroux and Simmonds and Read and Vinny.

Same goes for guys like Gill & Mesz & Gus. Coburn/Timonen/Streit/Schenn will be getting the lions share of the minutes.
Okay...? Don't see what that has to do with those three ranging from completely useless to almost completely useless.
