I think it would become a 4 man rotation though.
Marchment hasn't had the greatest season with the Marlies so far and has only just became fully healthy, so I wouldn't count on him sticking around this time around. Probably sits in the box for a day or two, gets sent back down, and comes back up at the next injury</div></div>
Personally, I've always defended Goat, as he has come a long way in terms of skating and picking up the pace. His ability to win faceoffs are a big advantage for him to stay in the lineup, though I would like to see him become more physical.
Timashov, though not big, has heart and is second on the team in Hits with about 11-12 games less than everyone else. His energy, combined with Marchment's size and physicality plus Spezza's leadership would make quite an exciting 4th line when they develop.some chemistry.
