what do you think? (topic deals with playing prospects)

do you guys think it'd be smart to give some of the called up prospects a try? in my opinion id try straka and cousins on the 4th line with vinny and sit rinaldo and hall, and also try alt in place of grossman, since well we all know that Gus will see no ice any time soon or i would have said him, i honestly think that could provide more offense and a slightly better defense......i know this isn't going to happen but if it were to happen who would you want to see get a chance

That would not be smart at all. Laughton would be one thing, as his defensive game is a strength of his and he can play a physical style that's more suited to a bottom 6 player, while hopefully providing a bit of offense.

Putting offense only guys like Straka or Cousins (who didn't exactly light the AHL on fire) on a 4th line isn't going to do you a whole lot of good.

If you're going to sit Grossmann why in the **** would you do it for Alt and not Gustafsson?

I think it would make the series shorter.

even if they did have better options with the black aces its not going to happen.
a veteran who is playing very poorly would never be healthy scratched.

I think we would all need to start stocking up on grain alcohol.

I think the "vets are the best for the playoffs" is a load of crap guy but lets be serious here. Other than MAYBE one filling in I dont do it.

I wouldn't sit Hall for either guy. You lose a penalty killer. And it's pretty clear that we can't be at a shortage of penalty killers.

This isn't the preseason. Those guys had 8-9 months to crack this roster. Now is not the time barring injury.
