How come nobody is mentioning the disservice done to this guy by Pat Quinn last night? One of the all time scoring leaders and classiest players to play the game and he's a healthy scratch in a pivotal playoff contest??? The guy basically did the Leafs a favor and waived his no trade to come help them try and win a cup for the laughable nation and he is the scapegoat after a 7-2 pounding where the Leafs were outclassed and outmanned in every way possible...... sure the guy isn't a great player anymore... not really even a good one but he deserved to dress for his final game (likely) in the NHL if even just to play powerplays and a few minutes... you can't tell me he was worse than Quinn's pet project Antropov was this playoff?

And while we're at it.. why bring Calle out of retirment if he was going to become your 9th dman on the depth charts? Time for Pat to go.
