I think Kaleta will be the odd man out come playoffs. Assuming we are healthy (minus Roy)
Agreed. Unless Kaleta is 100% healthy and back to his old ways, he may not warrant a spot. Does Mancari have to go back down once we're 100% healthy? It'd be nice to spell Neids/Grier here and there over these last 10 games.
Grier/Nieds/McCormick do their job most nights. I really have no issues with Grier or that line. I also highly doubt Grier or Nieds comes out of the lineup in the playoffs.
I like McCormick, but he needs to tighten up his faceoffs if he's going to stay in the middle of that trio. They're good for 10-12 minutes of relatively safe time per night. Nothing is likely going into either net, and that's a good thing most of the time in the playoffs.
