Guys that suck continue to play while guys with talent go into a rough stretch and they are in the doghouse.
I wonder if Trotz punishes players who don't play to their potential. Tootoo, Smithson, Ward are all maxing out their potential. Trotz is getting what he expects from these 3rd/4th line guys. Dumont, however, is supposed to produce as a top six forward. The point is, more is expected from Dumont, because he is capable of more. No one expects Smithson to produce goals. Just my two cents on why Dumont is always in the doghouse.
