I don't mind if McLeod dresses (honestly don't see where some of the McLeod hate comes from, he's been decent for us). the "problem" with our 4th line has tended to be center related far more than forward related honestly. for half the year Sessions was weak there, and the last half fiddler has been bad. McLeod, is more than just a fighter to me, he hits hard and often, causes chaos in the net front, and is just a physical presence out there. yes he's slow, but given decent center play on the 4th line he hasn't been a liability on ice. he's not as good a forechecker as salomaki or Watson, but he tends to cause more chaos.

these guys are gonna get like 6-8 minutes per game at most come playoff time, so this isn't an overly critical discussion point, but I can live with any two of salomaki/Watson/McLeod as long as it's not all three with Watson pushing fiala out of the lineup (which would be criminal and stupid).... and as long as it's sessions centering two of them and not fiddler (which you just know it will be unfortunately)...

Yeah I don't understand where the hate for McLeod is coming from. I really don't.

Agree. Put Fish in the 4th with Salomaki and Watson and let Sissons do his thing with Wilson and Smitty on the 3rd as long as it works. Dress McLeod if it looks like we're getting gooned up

Also like the 2nd line of Fiala-Hook-Neal cause they all play really well together.

I don't hate McLeod. If you're playing a big team like Anaheim, keep him in the lineup. If not, put in Salomaki for his speed. They're fourth liners. I don't think which of them are in the lineup should make or break the team, especially with the limited minutes they'll hopefully be seeing in the playoffs.
