Even though hes young, he is playing a much better game then Dale right now. God forbid Leetch doesnt come back for awhile Id feel much more comfortable with Tyutin playing 17-20 min then Purinton, you could always send him down when Brian gets back... just so long as you dont send him back and forth 8 times. I like Dale, but hes not getting it done, so bring on Fedor.
As much as I like him, I agree that Dale's a liability on defense. if it's a matter of him vs. Tjutin, then Tjutin is my choice hands down.
