Finally, a rational statement regarding Stoll. Does everyone expect him to play 82 games this year and if he doesn't, he should be in the minors? That's ludicrous! He's gotta learn to play at the NHL level sooner or later so why wait? While Stoll still has a lot to learn, these things can be learned and should be learned at the highest possible level. Was Hemsky playing 82 games last year? Did it hurt his development? C'mon people!
I apologize for the rant. I just get sick of seeing the same old crap every thread.
P.S. It wouldn't surprise me to see Stoll sent to the minors yet either. But he still deserves to be in Edmonton over Pete Sarno. Really...
