The players that tend to be constant fixtures in those roles also have very specific reasons for being there. You're not exactly going to play a Patrick Kane on a checking line, for example. Problem for Stalberg is, he can't even prove he's a better player than a Nick Spaling at this point, let alone justify being handed a consistent top 6 role.
Maybe Spaling has and always will be the better player?
