justify not playing him all you want, the fact is still that he has the best hands on the team outside of sid and geno and DB refused to play him with sid for any length of time. Geno hasn't been producing and has tried to do a lot on his own so i'm not suprised comrie didnt just start lighting the world on fire. Then the guy gets put down on the 3rd and 4th lines and no PP time.
those of you that think he was handled correctly are just dead wrong. Bylsma rewards and plays players in key roles that remind him of himself and its hurting the team IMO
if it was zherdev that was brought in we would be seeing the same thing, and is probably what happened with poni last post-season... you know the pp specialist that was supposed to make guerin obsolete, yea we saw how much he was used on the top unit. now did i want poni back? no, but there were reasons the guy was a consistent 20+ goal scorer
a lot of people think DB does no wrong in handling these floater skill guys like they are trash.... and these guys can carry a team offensively during stretches of the season, something talbot, rupp, adams, etc. can not and will never do.
give me a break
Seriously glad what i have been thinking for a few weeks is being echoed.
I think you are spot on, I was thinking exactly of Zherdev as "that guy would be a scratch in minutes".
