Well that's a given - but I AM curious as to what constitutes these decisions. True, we haven't seem OKT or Syvret play much, but OKT was the player of the game against the Panthers last week - I haven't seen any defensemen past the first pairing get that honor this year. I could take or leave Syvret, but just going on watching Jones play over the past two years, at least I don't notice him on the ice making stupid plays. You DO notice Jones and Coburn doing that.
Seems odd not to give at least a few more minutes to these guys.
