You can't and shouldn't base whether or not a player should be in the NHL on one play. That goes both ways..the good and bad plays. Take a look at the totality of his play since the beginning of the season and he has been much better than advertised and has proven that he's ready to play in the NHL right now. Getting worn down? We're what..a quarter of the way through the season? Get real. The kid is proving that he can play. While he does make the occasional mistake, who doesn't? If we were to nitpick the play of Carle or even Kimmo, we'd be able to find that even they make the occasional mistake. Albeit Sbisa's mistakes may happen with a little more frequency, he's not costing the Flyers games. Is he the difference between winning and losing? Probably not. Is he proving he is capable of playing in the NHL and should be here all year? Is he learning much more now than he would be playing in Juniors? You bet. The future is very bright for this youngster.
