He's more than good enough as a 6th defenseman. He's only had 12 minutes of play, you know little or nothing about him. But that will change, Stevens said OKT-Syvret on the 3rd will play a lot more now until Parent is back because we're facing several games a week, and we don't want to kill our top four D.
There is absolutely no need to look for an expensive veteran D, OKT is already the 7th defenseman, that means Syvret must be sent down. What has he done to deserve that? Nothing.
Oh...I really do suspect quite a lot of Euro hatred around here
What has Syvret done to deserve staying in the lineup? Nothing. Tolly has been a little better but barely.
It's got nothing to do with prejudice. No one cares where a guy is from as long as he can play. If Tolly shows he can play, he can stay awhile. I'm not holding my breath.
A trade for a Dman to play with Parent is evitable before the deadline. We can't risk having these guys on the ice in the playoffs.
Mmmm, Toronto has loads of excess and has been putting Exelby in the stands....
