Sydor's veteran presence in helping the younger defenseman can't be overlooked, no matter how bad he sucks on the ice
I hope so. Grossman took a step back the last few games, but I'm glad he getting back with Robidas, at least he was in practice.
Niskanen played somewhat better. Plus, the one game he and Janik played as a pair, they both looked good.
Sydor has looked bad though. His time on the PP really pisses me off. If Tippett was concerned about holding people accountable and rewarding hard work, Daley would be on the PP.
Daley has had bad games this year, but he's stepped up when Morrow went down. Eriksson, Neal, and Daley are the only players that have elevated their game. Neal and Eriksson have seen that turn into more TOI and more PP time. Daley is getting the minutes, but is getting shafted on PP time.
