So those 3 guys, with all their experience, can't do a better job than Lapierre. Plus they are playing with Detroit. I know they do a good job, but maybe Lapierre would be as good if he was with Detroit. Give some time to Lapierre and keep him with the team and he will become a good 3rd, 4th liner. It's funny how people are quick to bash our young players.
Not that Lapierre had a bad year - I think he's on the way to being a good player. But you have to take into account how much he's been sheltered by our coaching staff. The only Hab who played against weaker opposition this season was Latendresse. Whereas Draper and company were Detroit's second option against elite players.
