yeah, what a waste...

At this point, wins with Messier, Jagr and Holik providing the production don't mean as much as getting the other kids experience. And further, understanding what these kids can do. Breaking up Holik and Jagr was a must. Youth can surround those guys. But giving Balej less than 10 minutes makes so little sense. The kid's playing pretty well (I liked how he got into the fray too). Murray's skating hard and has been getting off decent shots. The only thing I can think is that guys like Hlavac and McCarthy are auditioning for next year - meaning, the question is will they be signed. Guys like Balej and Murray are in the picture.

Here's a good stat: Jagr, 24 minutes. Wow. Might as well tear his groin.

A positive was Jamie did get 20 minutes of ice time. How surprising. But that's it for him. No shots. A late, lazy penalty. He's done.
