I said he should have played against Edmonton and I stick by that. Thankfully the score didn't get out of hand as Stortini was feeling pretty good after our toughest guy couldn't handle Peckham. With Brown targeting Hall and Eberle on seperate occasions, a blow-out would have produced some unfavorable results in the department of physicality for LA.
I do agree with Herby though in regards to playing time. Before the season, I was all for Westy playing and then sitting for most of the game. Then I'd double shift another forward in his place. What the Kings want to do, I believe, is have Westgarth continue developing into a guy who isn't going to hurt you if he plays in the 3rd. He has come a long way from when he first joined Manchester, much like Parros way back when, and even his biggest detractors have to admit that he has looked much better out on the ice over the past month.
That blueline comes out of nowhere sometimes though. Need to stop tripping over that.
