    Good game tonight so far. Ever since playing Top 6 minutes for us, his stats are:

    3 GP 2 Goals 3 Assists for 5 points. Maybe this guy has some potential ?

    I think he is just what he is now, a 1st line AHL'r who when called up can hold his own.

    He had one pretty bad d-zone giveaway in the first, but otherwise has been solid the last few games.

    When Kadri and Bozak are both back (possibly as early as next game), either Holland or Smith will be the odd man out. Right now, as much as I want to see Holland succeed, Smith is the guy to go with IMO

    He’s an elite first line centre. Obviously.

    solid depth centre-man.

    maybe keep him up for a bit longer but in the long-term he's not much more than a depth forward and a decent one at that.

    him and Holland give us some good depth centres to call up.

    Would like to give holland more time though, it's only been two games!

    I still want to give Holland a chance in top six role for a few games more before sending him down. See how he plays with Lupul.

    Holland will play top 9, or AHL. Wouldn't be fair to him to play 4th line minutes. Same with Smith, but he could translate easier to a 4th line role of the two.

    He has to play top 6 to be effective and he's been great. I don't think he looked as good his previous stint as a checker. Good guy to call up when needed.

    He's been solid. But when everyone is healthy there isn't a spot for him.

    The fair part is giving him a few more games before his long term assignment with the Marlies.

    He's Mason Raymond without the speed; reliable with good hands, and the play doesn't seem to die on his stick. He's played well for us so far, but he's not good enough to crack our roster when healthy. A good 14th forward utility man to have tucked away in the minors.

    I don't disagree, as long as it's not on the 4th line.

    He's coming into his prime yrs.
    We should take advantage, it'll make Kadri sweat too

    He isn't better than Kadri or Bozak, so he is going to struggle with Holland for 3rd line spot.

    Orr - Smithson - McClaren

    Holland and Smith get sent down. But Smith made a very strong impression and I expect him to be back up if another forward gets injured

    He's done an admirable job. He lacks speed, But is a smart player.

    I don't even know what we do when Bozak come back.

    with Kadri back Smithson probably doesn't play next game. Holland and Smith have earned 2 of the top 9 Center spots for another game at least. But when Bozak and he might be ready Thursday there's no spot available in the top 9 for both, and there are no winger spots available either except maybe one for Smith on the 4th line if we don't dress both goons.

    Honestly as much as it sucks because he's played awesome in the past 3 games in a top 6 spot he probably goes down when Bozak is back

    I'd start Bozak on the 3rd line with Raymond and Kulemin and leave Smith where he is

    JVR Kadri Kessel
    Lupul Smith Clarkson
    Raymond Bozak Kulemin
    McClement Smithson Orr
