Getting Vis back and getting CdH some PP time could really make a big difference in our PP-effectiveness.

The only problem with giving CdH PP time is that he's already playing 22+ min a night without it. Giving him steady 1st unit time could get him into that 25-30 min category which could ultimately wear him out. He's still only 21 games into his NHL season, and considering the amount of time he's missed the past few years it is uncertain whether or not he can hold up over a full season. Much less a full season that includes 40-50 games of 25+ top pairing NHL minutes.

I won't rule it out though. The kid has been that good.
