I say again they should try him on the PK.  As a zone entry disrupter and open-ice playmaker, he could be almost as good as Marner.  He can steal pucks and use his stick to blow up rushes with the best of them, if given a chance.

I'd agree if you were talking about Nylander.

I'm more surprised that Tavares and Kadri are never played on the PK, especially since it lacks guys who can win face-offs.

Nylander, Tavares, Kadri -- sure.  But I want to see Matthews stretch his game a bit.  He might get burned a few times at first but in the long run I think it would help to put him in a situation where he has to think defense first.
