If Fedor "is not ready", then what does that say about Bobo, Malakhov and Purinton, who he handily outplayed through preseason?

I think it's sad that developing players the "right way" means getting them as far away from this team as we can. 29 other NHL teams have rewarded spectacular play from young players with roster spots, putting their best 23 players together regardless of their age. I'm a big Bouchard supporter, but Tjutin earned that spot and should keep it until his play earns him a demotion.
