Adam Rotter: Right now, his role is in the press box but at some point, or if there is an injury he will get into the lineup. It's not the worst thing for him to be watching some of these playoff games and hopefully he can translate what he is seeing and how the playoffs are different from the regular season onto the ice when he does get in.
