Part of the problem with some of these young d-men is that they don't get enough ice. Parent could come here and we could pair him with Tammy and that would at the moment be our top d paring. Give him 25 minutes a night and just force feed him ice. He makes a mistake, put him right back out there. What have they got to lose?!
Then the message to players like Plante, Belle, Petiot, Chorney - all of the defensive prospects in the AHL is that the Oilers would rather give the NHL opportunity and minutes to Parent: a guy that's been traded three times and waived (second time now) before the age of 23, than to them.
