Total waste of talent. Anyone can see this. Obviously Tippet cant
That's probably a poor example because players like Ovechkin stand out and you absolutely notice them. That is part of Boedkers problem...he has tons of speed and potential but he's not using it properly, he's not aggressive enough and quite honestly I like that the young ones have to earn their right to play. Everyone has been on this Porter, Boedker bandwagon and personally I don't think they have been all that impressive. I do like Boed's and I think he will earn a spot back either through injury this year or just stepping it up for next year. I thought he had a decent game last night though.

I think Tippett wants a strong team and we all need to realize one thing....Tippett wants to and gets paid to win. So if he thinks that a young player is not going to get the final result then I trust him.
