I'm kind of indifferent to the whole situation due to my ignorance of the player. However, your point about Vincour doesn't really have any place in this discussion; they wanted a look at a young player in the system while they had some forwards down with injury. It's just always going to be easier to be one of 12 rather than one of 6 guys.

I'm annoyed by Niskanen and Woywitka as much as anybody. It would have been nice to see what Blindenbacher had at some point and if he hadn't up and gone back to Europe he may still have gotten a chance. The guy was injured when we might possibly have recalled him earlier in the season IIRC. Now he's basically quit and somehow it's the organization's fault?
