i just spent a bit of time looking at the box scores last night for team's 4th line minutes. 10-11 isn't bad at all for a 4th line shift. and he got all those minutes playing ES if i remember correctly, cause he wasn't on the PP or the PK.
Rakell looked pretty good. But I don't know that he looked good enough to stay.
It's a lot like with DSP last year. I'd say he looks good enough that he could fit in and not be a negative. But he also isn't really good enough to be much better than any replacement we could plug in. And going down would probably be better for development long term.
Anywho, thread has reached its limit. Make a new one if you want to continue discussion. I think this is the first GDT to be locked due to length in a long, long time.
