We used to need protection for him because he would contribute on a regular shift. Based on his play so far this year, that ship has sailed.
If he sits for 5 minutes, that's fine.
There is no point in having Neil and Kassian in the line-up anymore at the same time.
Neil should be on the 4th line, and we should have a defensively oriented energy 3rd line, whether that includes Grant or Condra or Smith.
I agree, and in fact, with Boro, Gryba, Cowen and Smith on the team, we should have enough big boys (BTW what's the point of Greening again?) to make even Neil superfluous. At this point, I'd like Neil, not Kassian, to be the guy who's usually a healthy scratch and that you sometimes play against rough teams. Neil is no longer the high-energy, hard-hitting pest we used to know. And Kassian is of no use whatsoever.
